Well the power button timestamp is 0 so it's not detected the power button being held down. I would look at the System event log and filter for User32 events. Look through those and see if anything is initiating a shutdown which is probably doubtful when your problem occurs since they are considered clean shutdowns. More likely this is a hardware issue with the power supply and unless it's completely failed a pc tech won't be able to tell you that.
