Applications Closing after Idle time

Why are my applicatons closing automatically? I leave for the day with several applications running only to find them all shutdown in the morning. I see no evidence in eventvwr or Windows Update logs that the PC restarted.
Windows 7 Professional
Joined to AD Domain - nothing changed using same account etc, apps stayed up on my previous XP Pro system.
