When you shut down Windows, if you have any programs running you'll get a message box warning you that a program is still running. You then have to close the program and tell XP again to shut down. It's a fairly pointless warning—better yet would be if XP automatically killed the programs without issuing the warning. That way, you wouldn't get error messages and wouldn't have to close each individual application before shutting down your computer. To have XP automatically close programs at shutdown, run the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Edit the AutoEndTasks key so that is has a value of 1. If the key doesn't exist, create it as a DWORD value and give it the value of 1. To disable it, either delete the key, or set the value to 0.

Shutdowns can be caused by many things. If you have your pc setup for automatic updates, some updates require a reboot and will do that automatically. Normally you can prevent that from happening by changing the settings from automatically updating to notify me first before updating.
The shutdown can also be caused by the cpu overheating. Your computer will automatically shut down to protect itself.
Shutdowns can also be created by a infected computer. Malware can cause this.
With out further details, such as what you were doing at the time of the shutdown it's difficult to say why your system is shutting down.
I can say that normally if its a update your system will shut down and reboot, not always, but usually.
Not a lot of help but additional information is really needed. What you are doing, brand of pc, if you have loaded new software or hardware, as much information as you can provide would help.
Sometimes, just goggling you problem on line with the make of the pc will help you find the answer you are having. Many times the problem you are having has already been addressed and a solution provided.
Most of the reasons for automatically shutdown are lack of cleaning or cooling. Clean your computer and put one (1) drop of thermal paste on the cpu core. Also your system files are corrupted or infected by viruses.

Take a look at the BIOS setups in these machines. Business HPs and Dells have a setting to allow automatic shutdown and startup based on time. Another explanation is timer software; all of the computers I manage run a software timer that shuts down automatically at night. You might also want to talk to your network administrator since there are lots of management tools that allow remote shutdown of computer. It could be something they?re doing on purpose ?..
There are lots of other possibilities but I would check these out first since they?re more likely.
