Why does my computer keep turning off


This computer is a Toshiba Satellite 1405-s171, it has a tendnecy to turn itsself on with no apparent pattern. it allways opens to outlook. This will happen with the computer hooked up to the cable, when the cable is removed from the usb port, or even when completely unplugged and in the carrying case. The only pattern that I can see is it will do it more often after cleaning out the cookies file. Usually if I go into the Toshiba powersaver and reset the system power mode manually the problem will not occur again...uaually but not allways. This problem is very frustrating and toshiba has not been any help, I hope you have come across this problem on other systems and can help.

Thank you,

Steve Rottas
