-Check for BIOS updates on the MSI motherboard.
-Check for anything in the Event Logs, around the time of shutdown.

Hoping someone could give me some other areas to possible look 
Office is a small 5 user office 
Server hardware/software: 
CPU: P4 3.2 
Mainboard: MSI 865G Neo2-PLS
Ram: 2GB PC2700 
Harddrive: 2x Seagate 200GB Mirrorred raid 
OS: SBS 2003 / veritas bu exec sbe / symantec antivirus sbe 
I have run some burn in test using both the as well as Sandra running tests for 3-4
days continuously as well as having run both the harddisks and ram
through external tests
The server has run continuously fine for the last week and a half. 
Server is hooked into a APC Powerstack 450 set to safely shut down the
server after 8 minutes of power outage.  Have tested this and it does
safely shut the server down
Saturday the 31st it shows an unexpected shutdown in the event log in
the System portion of it with no other information pertaining to what
may have caused this.  Is there anywhere I am missing that I could
possible look to see what may be causing this to happen?

Thanks in advance,
