    windows 8 shut down on its own after a period of time

    I took spare hard drive I had and installed 8 on my Dell notebook. Everything went well all driver loaded and I have been playing with it for a couple of days now, I like it. The only problem I'm having is after hours, I never really timed it, my computer shuts down and I have to restart it. Was wondering if anyone else was having this issue. I don't use it on battery for the most part and leave it plugged in. I checked power management,everythng is set correctly.

    Hi, welcome to forums...

    Have you installed Windows 8 correctly? Which beta you are using right now? Did you let the notebook plugged in most time, if that's the case, you need to troubleshoot the battery
