    Oh, I see I misread -- I was reading someone else's post. So it boots up, goes into the operating system, then shuts down, before waking up again. Nothing was closed.

    Lemme do some thinking on that one. That does sound like sleep mode -- she's saying the PC restarts and everything is still opened. But it does this randomly? That's either a driver error with Windows, or there's a GPU / CPU display issue.

    She said it comes back up to the OS but nothing has closed down, I assumed that meant programs are still up in the same state (browser pages, word documents, music player, whatever), could have misread though - which would indicate in issue with sleep, hybrid sleep or hibernation - of course, that’s assuming Windows as well, could be a Mac, which is pretty good at saving state when it crashes

    Yea, but she did say it does it randomly. If it's random, then it's not the sleep mode that's the issue. It's the hardware. Hell, it could even be a cable. She needs another cable to test.

    Could be a hardware issue triggered thing, sending it to hibernation - the state being saved tells me it definitely has a part in it, Windows can barely save state when it stays on correctly sometimes, just a matter of whether it’s the symptom or the problem

    please check your power supply or have someone to check and point to you where the powersupply, the thing is,the older the powersupply, the inconsistent power it distributed to your PC, the lower or inconsistent power rating run from your system will definitely crash or might disrupt your desktop
