Rightclick on My Computer and select Properties
In the Advanced Tab look at Startup & Recovery Settings
In the System Failure section untick Automatically Restart.
Apply and ok your way out.

Next time your system shuts down you should be able to see the error message.

You might also check your system temperatures as shutdowns can be due to overheating
