    During the night time when I go to sleep. After about 30min's my computer turns off, if i get back up and click anything it turns right back on and everythings good to go.

    Now If don't get up and I sleep in, in the morning I turn it on and my computer doesn't start up... I click the mouse, keyboard, power button. Nothing! I have to turn off the switch in the back hit the power button a couple times turn the switch back on and hit the power button THEN it turns back on. I dont have any sleep mode on or anything like that.
    WHY?

    I dont know if this is relevant, but Today the same thing happened... but nothing worked, my lights turned on and fans but nothing else. I heard a loud clicking... I opened up the case and 1 of my hard rives was clicking very loudly... :eek: After disconnection it and my other 3 hard drive just leaving the main one connected. It started up, but said something about the Bios and backup, I was about it write it down when it tuned off. I turned it back on and selected a earlier point in time start up. Now it works fine.

    Turned it back off throw in all my other hard drives they working perfectly fine now.

    I guess my question is, what can cause this? What can I do to prevent this? Why is my computer turning off?

    The clicking noise could indicate that your hard drive is failing.

    I would recommend running the drives manufactures diagnostic tools to find out further information.
