how many times did this happen? just once? MS forced a windows update recently... the WMF exploit.... if not, check your error logs...

control panel -> administrative tools -> event viewer -> system logs & applicaton logs... is there anything in there about your computer shutting down?

Have you checked the temperature of your PC? Sometimes Windows XP can turn off automatically to protect your hardware. You can turn this feature off but I definitely do not advise it if your PC is overheating.

Please give more info. What are you doing when it happens? What OS are you running? How long after you boot up your computer does it seem to restart? Is there a blue screen or error screen before it shuts off?
