    Ubuntu 12.04 randomly shutdown and restart

    I install the beta version of 12.04 and it randomly shutdown and restart by itself... I really don't know where to begin to fix this issue.

    Thank you

    Your going to have to provide a bit more info than that, like how to recreate it. I'm running 12.04 too and I have never had this problem.

    It would help if you describe your hardware. Is it a laptop/portable or desktop/office system? If it's an office system, do you have power management settings for a portable activated? It's possible that the machine is simply going into sleep or hibernate mode based on settings you've selected.

    I'm using a new Gateway NV57H13h Laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) 64-bit, Kernel Linux 3.2.0.20-generic,GNOME 3.3.92. The hardware is an Intel® Core™ i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz × 8, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M, 1GB VRAM with Optimus and CUDA. My power setting are not causing it to hibernate as I am working on the computer as it happens(it just did again and I had to rewrite this post...). Let me know what other kind of information you need.

    Thank you

    I don't know if there is command output you may need to find more about that but I'm quite lost in this...

    At least, output from "uname -a" and "lsb_release -a" is required.

    Could it be an over-temp shut down?

    I don't think as my laptop isn't hot but maybe it's just not working right and maybe it is. Is there a way to monitor the temperature before a unexpected shutdown?
