        Win-8.1 has been shutting down every 30 minutes since the august update. Anyone else dealing with this?

        Every 30 minutes sounds like a scheduled task.

        You can check the Windows shutdown log to see what caused the shutdown. See this post for details.

        cheers, Paul

        Never came across this on three devices over Augusts patches (x64)Win8.1 Pro
        Good opportunity to check that you have up-to-date OEM device drivers installed, some may have been superseded with fixes and older ones have been in use on your system.
