    Shutting Down Unexpectedly


    I have reached the hypothesis that no one is shutting the computer down, it's the computer shutting itself down. Help would be greatly appreciated. This computer is brand new. Help please!

    If you want no sleep, set everything to never.

    I want it to sleep, but I don't want it to shut down. It's like it's shutting itself down.

    When it sleeps, the light flashes. The light is not flashing at all now, and it causes me to reboot it.
