Windows Auto Updates spring to mind. MS issued their latest security update on 
Friday. I have my servers set to auto download and install at 3am in the 
morning - a standard setting.
All my servers did the u/g over the weekend and rebooted. Go look ....

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,
