    Windows 10 10130 logging off on inactivity?


    So I recently updated from 10074 to 10030(switched from slow to fast) and my routine would be to use the laptop until midnight and not turn it off when I hit the sack. When I go back to it, it's already in the lock screen, logged off. It's not in that sleep state where you login and everything was saved. This one totally logs the system off, as if you had just restarted the system.

    Any ideas? I don't have screen saver turned on, nor sleep turned on in my power settings. This has happened twice already.

    Could it have blue screen while you were away and rebooted itself? Is your system stable?

    adjust your screen saver - lock screen comes on after screen saver
    if you want lock screen to display - do not turn off display (power setting)
    do not sleep (power settings)

    Check the Windows Update history. Do the dates when updates have been installed correlate with those two times you have found the computer restarted? If so, it might be an automatic restart after the updates.

    The only time I've had blue screens is when I max out the memory usage. ie: Playing GTA V and an application opens itself, It would BSoD. But other than that, it's okay. The system wasn't under heavy load during those 2 days.

    I'm quite certain it wasn't an update, though I could be mistaken too. Usually when an update is done and it restarts, a notification is left afterwards stating that updates were installed. Both instances did not give me a notification after so I can't really tell if an update happened or not. Also my update history only contains Windows Defender updates, which usually don't require a restart.

    I will see if the system restarts again when I hit the sack.

    Thanks, I found 6 of them, 2 of which correlate with my 2 instances. The other 4 are accounted for (blue screens, improper shutdown). Is there anyway to find out what's causing them?

    Okay, I may have found a culprit. It appears before Kernel-General and Kernel-Boot (both of which tell me that the system had just booted up). The source is called UserPowerModeService.
    The first one restart had these:
    Code:
    Process C:\Windows\SysWOW64\powercfg.exe (process ID:4564) reset policy scheme from {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c} to {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c
    and another one after it
    Code:
    Process C:\Windows\SysWOW64\powercfg.exe (process ID:8768) reset policy scheme from {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c} to {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c}
    Though the first restart didn't occur right after the those events. After 4 hours, the system seems to have booted up on its own with
    Code:
    The operating system started at system time ‎2015‎-‎06‎-‎04T19:45:41.495126700Z.
    The second restart had these before it:
    Code:
    Process C:\Windows\SysWOW64\powercfg.exe (process ID:8388) reset policy scheme from {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c} to {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c}
    then
    Code:
    Process C:\Windows\SysWOW64\powercfg.exe (process ID:908) reset policy scheme from {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c} to {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c}
    After 2 hours it restarts on its own again.
