Hey guys!! Thanks for replying!! I've been away for awhile so I haven't had a chance to get back to y'all... I ended up following NickN's Windows 7 service list thing in his optimization stuff... It started turning itself off again, but I noticed something... It seems like it only does it when the laptop is leaned up against the wall (I try not to put it flat on the carpet so the fan can get some air)... I've left for the day with it defragging on a hard-cover book on the bed (again just so the fan can pull air) and I'll come back 8 hours later to find it still runnin strong... But I'll lean it on the wall, come back in 10 minutes and it's dead... Does that mean anything, or is it just a coincidence??? Being a Toshiba, it has the HDD-Protection thing... Could this be a problem?? The task scheduler thing is intriguing... What exactly does that do?? Would I notice anything if I turned it off?? And also, I'll be honest... I don't know where one would find an event log... It seems like that would be a help though!! Any guidance as to where to look?? Thank y'all so much!!!
