    Windows 10

    I've been having this problem for a week or so now, but I've had Windows 10 since it first became available. When I close my laptop lid, especially overnight, it reboots. Which is a real pain in the neck because then I have to open things again, if I've got an audio or video on pause, I have to refind my place... I tried changing some settings last night before closing the lid, but all it did was shut the laptop completely down.

    I reset everything to default and now it just goes into hibernate instead of restarting. I'm not sure it's actually set to hibernate, but hibernation is better than restarting!

    My PC is now also doing this, I've tried all the fixes suggested here and nothing. It's fine when gaming, or sitting on the internet. but if I leave it alone, guarantee it'll reboot.

    It HAS to be a windows 10 update conflicting somewhere!?

    I'm thinking so. Like I said, I've had Windows 10 since it first came out and this is a new problem. It never did the rebooting thing until about a week ago, except when it was doing automatic updates. That's what I thought it was at first, but when it was every single day and it wasn't installing anything on start up... The only thing that has helped is me resetting to default in the advanced Power Options in the Balanced Power Plan setting.

    I'm also having this problem but it appears right after laptop goes to sleep. I try to wake it up, it wakes but it starts computer compitely over. I have tried everything in this thread and only thing I found in common with these wierd starts is first happened week after I upgraded to 10 second came another week later third and fourth came couple of days later and then couple more in next day. But then there is one full month and then these wierd restars start again and now it's something that happens everytime I put my computer to sleep. The connection I found is pretty loose but it's something everytime this is happening there have been some sort of Windows Defender. And offtopic there's also this wierd security notifications where Windows warns that I don't have working security and Norton says everything is fine. And the fault discription I found in Event viewer is roughly translated this: "System have been resatrted without complitly shutting down the system before. This failure might come from power lost, crahing or system stoped to respond."

    Windows 8.1

    I hace the same problem, i own an Asus gl551jm laptop, the problem started in win10 so I though that it could be solved by downgrading to 8, but no, the problem kept the same. Every time the laptop sleep, after I tried to wake it up it only restarted.
    I send it to Asus but they couldn't fix anything. It's a windows error because I tried Ubuntu on mi laptop and everything just worked out fine.

    I think it's worth highlighting that almost everyone showing the symptoms is running an ASUS computer (me too!).

    not running ASUS, and yea anytime i leave my computer Idle it just shuts off, doesn't restart, it just shuts off. Additionally it is scrambling my desktop icons. nearly every time i restart my system after a shut down, the desktop icons have moved. I have tried resetting to default and changing all of my sleep, idle settings but nothing seems to change. If I am gaming, i can play a 6 hour game session, and the computer runs flawlessly...i shut down my game and walk into the kitchen for food, and i come out, and its off. Will also shut down when idle for more than a few minutes with firefox or facebook open. I have been hunting this thing down for a week. I am not very computer savvy i tend to be a button mashing gamer boy, but i can read and follow instructions and so i have been haunting forums for days trying to find a fix. It was fine until a couple weeks ago, and I upgraded to Win10 almost day 1 release. Have Win10 on my wife's laptop, which IS an ASUS system and it only happens occasionally for her....with me its constant, anytime I idle, it shuts down. This leads me to believe its software issues. I have cleaned my hardware thoroughly, blew three air cans cleaning every nook of my tower case. reassembled it all carefully and completely, reapplied thermal paste to the CPU coolers. Checked all the fans for operation...and I am still smashing my face into the keyboard 8x a day because i walk out of the room and come back 3 minutes later and my PC is off.....HOPE....hope they address this soon

    I think I have solved problem by installing WIndows 10 again and disabling sleep and now instead of going to sleep my computer goes to hibernate mode. I have also localised this malfunction in driver of Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, after I uninstall the driver Windows's own sleep function works but the screen settings are horrible... Intel should update their driver because it's bad that it won't work. So I think this Intel stupid driver is that is causing all of these failures...
