In the nine years I've been using *buntu, I have yet to see ANY of these problems. A machine that reboots on its own?! Never! So it must be a matter of settings.

taking lessons from Microsoft, Ubuntu?!
No, of course not. You're in full control, hence it's nothing like m$.

listen i tell my computer what i want it to do. i will not tolerate it doing things on its own! the last thing i want is to be in the middle of a movie and BAM! my machine restarts.
Settings, Nick. Check your settings.
