I have a Sager 8500, (PIII-1gb, 15", DVD), running Win XP Pro, that has started
to have a problem with turning itself off, also.
The laptop will abruptly shutdown for no apparent reason. The shutdown does
not generate an event in the event log. There doesn't seem to be any program or
service that is influencing the problem. Also, when I power the laptop back up, Xp
boots as if there was no 'crash'.
I have watched carefully what I am doing when the system stops & there is no
consistent thing I am doing when it stops. Sometimes it will run for days w/o
dying & then it will die. Then when the system is being booted back up, it will die
as soon as the OS is loaded.
I've thought about the power-saving/hibernation functions, but can't seem to
find anything connected with that causing the problem.
It happens whether I am on the battery or on AC power.
Anybody else seen this problem?
I've been scoping the forum for a solution & have had my KB 'popped' loose - this is after watching amovie for about an hour & then having a shutdown, followed by a shutdown as soon as it booted. The third shutdown within 5-10 minutes prompted me to come to the forum looking for help. That was about 80-90 minutes ago & I've been running with the KB loose since then with no problems..... -- maybe it's heat related?????
