    About the only thing I can think of off the top of my head is Windows updates, but by default they should be turned off from auto rebooting.

    To Check - Open the settings - Update and security - Advanced Options - Should be OFF

    If its not the updates then its either some other program restarting or outside interference ( power related problems could do it) It can also be a hardware issue, Eg: if its getting to hot the inbuilt Safety in the CPU or Graphics will auto shutdown to save its self.

    There's a lot of possibilities. The Power Plan Settings for example I always turn every setting to "never" esp when working on customers computers, its a PITA when they go to Sleep or screen saver mode when doing something.

    Have a read of some of the causes / fixes. https://windowsreport.com/random-restart-windows-10/ ( Ignore 4.1)
