COMPUTER SHUTS DOWN ON ITS OWN

Postby KimJRI98 on Sun Aug 04, 2013 8:24 pm

Hi EVERYONE

I was wondering if anyone has a solution to my problem. My problem is that my laptop shuts down on its own without notifying me. It just completely, entirely shuts down on its own. Anyone got a solution? Id really appreciate it.

Kim, It is hard for anyone to reply if you do not tell us your computer type, os type etc. The obvious answer is to check the power settings for your OS. In my Mint15 with Cinnamon it is under System Settings/Hardware/Power Management.
Cheers, Mike

How old is it? If it just started recently then it may be a heat issue.

So is it a shutdown, poweroff, sleep. Shutdown is an operation/procedure of cleaning up. Area you saying your computer is performing the shutdown operation randomly? Or than it randomly turns off (Check battery? Is it above 20%)

As others have stated, what are the specfics of the Laptop, make/model/ processor something. It's very hard to troubleshoot a problem of "Computer shuts down on it's own" without a little more detail. Did this happened while plugged in? Or just while on battery?

Details, details, and more details will help get the answers you seek!!

Not bashing you, I have done the same, asking a very generic question.

From my short time using Mint 13 I have not experienced any sort of un-wanted "shutdowns" of course I'm on a desktop not a laptop
