:) Stop CPU from Rebooting while backing up or transfering files
PCMover was about half way through transferring files from my old computer with Raid 0 to new computer with Raid 1 when my computer robooted again. This has been a frequent problem over the last two weeks as I have been unable to do a successful backup or transfer of files so that I can transfer them onto my new computer.

I have used several different software programs for backup and both the Vista and Laplink for transferring files and in each case it stops either in the first 5 minutes or the last five minuites. So it has never been totally backup up.

Two weeks ago I set windows update to download and not automatically reboot. I just checked and those settings are still in place. I have also unplugged the Cables from both computers that go to the internet so that hopefully a program won't download something and force a reboot.

Any other ways of preventing a computer from rebooting when one is either backing it up or transferring files to the newer computer and it may take 12 to 20 hours of time.

Thanks for any help from anyone out there.
