Ok so I am having this big problem with my mom's computer. It turns off by itself at 6 o'clock and turns on by itself around 7:30. Then turns back off at ten. No matter what I do it won't turn on, only by itself. Can any one help me out with this?

First of all, please stop spamming. If you want to have a conversation with someone, do it through PM please.

Second of all, "take it to a shop" is a pretty poor recommendation. Most people know that option already.

Anyway, is your mother's computer a laptop? If it is, perhaps try checking the power saving options.

Computers don't turn off and on by themselves at specific times unless specified so in the BiOS. Another option is you UPS (if you have any) or a power controlled timer outside your computer.

Also another problem may be if your mother made a chron job for some reason

Thank you so much for the help on this. I checked the power supply and the BIO. It was both things! My mom can be a pretty dumb woman some times.

Thanks again.
