    Pretty sure this user has a P650HS-G.

    FWIW I have the same model running latest everything including FC2 and haven't had a hard shutdown while I've been using the computer

    Yeah I need to find out why some units do it and others do not.
    I just need to be able to reproduce it.

    John,

    Just a thought i use throttlestop auto booting with windows (managed by control station app - throttlestop folder within control station folder structure) at the same time. Could this be a cause ?

    Also it seems sporadic. Last night after experiencing a problem power off and immediately changing to EC automatic for an hour i changed back to Manual mode again and my p870 dm3 has idled for 24 hours now with no problem. It really is hard to reproduce this at will.

    Regards

    Chris (UK)

    It's really hard to tell. Here is a really weird example of a common stability problem.
    We have proven on various occasions that you can have a certain undervolt value and your system is 100% stable, you can throw anything at it and it can run stable for years.
    Now I can assure you and PROVE to you that the same stable system can be compromised by just adding an extra device or driver or even a new running software.
    Yeah weird right?
    Anything that will run kernel level functions can create bsods or simply crash the system.
    We have found stuff that throws those if you have too much undervolt even though everything else is/was stable before.
    So why does that happens? Why does an extra piece of software now requires more voltage even tough before it you could load the system at 100% and it was stable?
    Well, I lack the appropriate knowledge to explain this, I just know I can reproduce it with ease.

    I've uninstalled CCC completely using Revo Uninstaller.

    Yes, that's right.

    It did even with ccc uninstalled I then reinstalled it because the keyboard app doesn't work with my model and it turns on by it self without ccc. When I was using the old fan app this never happened how do you go back to the old one.

    Completely agree on this. That's why my throttlestop settings are still a work in progress after 2 years :D

    try stopping the ClevoService in Task Manager. That helped me. No hard shutdowns.
    It's a pity but until this is fixed in the PA71ES, I cannot buy Fan Control. :/

    @John@OBSIDIAN-PC

    Another note: since switching away from the suite and installing the individual apps, I again have to stop and restart Keyboard LED whenever I sleep the computer to turn off the keyboard lights.
