Leave the computer idling for about 10 minutes then open the control panel. When it shuts itself down, note the time then Immediately go to the Event Viewer and see if any error shows at exactly that time. Ignore any other errors - there can be many due to various software bugs, mostly harmless (plenty of them in Win 10 upgrades).

Let us know what you find - the error number and description are important if you see one that matches the time.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.
If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt).
The logs are large, upload them using Zippy ( No account/registration needed ) or upload to a site of your choosing. Give us the links please.
