    Alright this is the first time i have ever seen this problem, but its been happening for a few days now. So i went to a concert on thursday and didnt get back to my pc until monday night. well i boot up my pc and everything is working fine and dandy. well then on tuesday i wake up and my PC is hanging at the HP screen that appears when i first turn on the power to my pc. so i turn it off and reboot it.m well everything goes fine and it boots like normal and runs without a problem.

    Here is the issue.

    I have noticed that if my PC is idle for say maybe 10 minutes (idle as in im not using it first hand, doesnt matter if programs are running) then it will reboot itself. after it reboots it always hangs at that HP screen. When i get back into windows, nothing is any different, there is no error message, there is nothing! Why is it doing this? Is there anything I can do to fix this? In the maybe 2 years now i have had this computer i have never had such an issue!

    EDIT: And just in case, i went into my event log under Windows Logs > System and i see this event appearing 8 times about an hour before the last reboot
