Computer shuts down
« on: October 15, 2012, 09:07:52 PM »
Wondering if anyone else has this problem. When I leave Mach3 open on my desktop my computer shuts down, but not with anything else.I've had Lazycam up now for a couple hours and has not shut down. Any ideas?

Have a look at your computers power options in Control Panel. I am thinking you may have it set in there to close or hibernate or whatever after a certain amount of inactivity.

Have you seen it shut down? Is there a blue screen when it does? Does it just shut down instantly?

Have not seen it . I started it last night  and today it was still running but the computer had a dark screen had to shut down and restart the computer. Restarted Mach3 today and it is still running but had to go to msconfig and turn off load startup items
