Question
Why does my laptop keep shutting down it's own?

Answer
Laptops can shut down on their own for any number of reasons.  Windows is usually set to put a computer into sleep mode or hibernation mode after a certain period of inactivity.  Another possibility is a low or defective battery, which can result in shut down.  Another reason is a damaged cooling system that causes the CPU to overheat and shut down.

Expertise

I have a fair amount of experience in peer-to-peer networking. I can answer questions about hardware, networking software, protocol settings, etc. I have some client-server experience, but not a lot with Windows-based servers. I can also give some advice on home network security: VPN, firewalls, anti-virus, etc.

Experience

I am the Director of Information Systems for a large law firm which connects about 300 users over five offices via a wide area network. We use client-server, peer-to-peer, remote access, VPN, Internet, and proxy servers.

I also have a peer-to-peer network of computers at home, with file and print sharing, remote access, shared network storage, and shared Internet access with a firewall.
