Windows 11 Shut Down / Restarts

Copper Contributor

Hi, I have had Windows 11 for quite a while now. I play games on my computer 24/7 pretty much. I know that my parts are not overheating etc.. Windows SFC Scan did not find any corrupt files. I tried downloading new drivers multiple times. But the PC still randomly either shuts down or restarts during my game. It mainly happens at night. Like It does not crash or anything like that, just "Shut-Down" screen pops up and that has happened so many times, to the point where I can't take it anymore. It used to work perfectly fine on Windows 10.


PC Specs : 

CPU - Ryzen 5 5600x

GPU - RX 6800XT

SSD - 32GB DDr4


PSU - Coolermaster 850W 80+ Gold

@Puruuu  Hi!

Unfortunately, Windows11, at night automatically performs maintenance and other processes that could not perform before,

it's best to manually check for download updates and perform the restart yourself

thanks to this you will be able to control it and these problems should not be repeated:)

@A1 But here is the thing, I made my active hours into 8 AM to 2AM. And right now it did it at 12:11 AM
