    After playing Diablo2 or Counter-Strike Global Offensive for any length of time my computer attempts to shut down. It closes the game and prompts to wait for steam to close or force it to shut down. I then click cancel to prevent it from shutting down. I viewed the event log and it tell me my attempt to restart or turn off the computer failed. Im not sure why just these two games seem to attempt to shut down my computer. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I originally thought it was just Diablo2 not being compatible with windows7, but CSGO just came out and I dont have any problem with other valve games including the first two counter strike games.

    Here are my computer specs if it helps:

    - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX
