Preventing Automatic Shutdowns/Restarts

Hi there,

I am transferring a large amount of data and need to leave the PC on overnight. I believe I have configured Windows 7 Professional so that automatic restarts for updates are disabled, yet the PC still sometimes shuts down when left on for long periods.

Any advice on how to prevent automatic shutdowns is hugely appreciated.

Many thanks...

Have you checked to make sure you have hibernate/sleep mode disabled from the power options area?
