    There might be a problem in UPS switch or RAM problem.

    Many computers have a BIOS setting that controls this behavior.

    It might be some problem in CPU so you have to make a talk with some expert gateway support team for solving your problem.

    Does your PC's date and time setting restores to default? I used to have the same problem before, solved it for sometime and the problem is again seen now in my PC.

    My friend told me it may be because BIOS battery is down, so I changed it. Replaced it with new one. It worked for couple of month. And now the same problem has occurred again. I don't think my new battery would be low within this short duration.

    Go into BIOS on startup and you will find an advanced setting for the machine's action ofter power off. This can be set to be OFF, START, or LAST STATE before power off. Set it to OFF for normal use. It is set to ON currently which is really only useful for servers.

    I think it's not a problem.
    you may be configured it in bios set up.
    There is an option showing when power state.
    use F2 button to modify this

    1. You do not need to turn off the vacation switch on the back of the machine (what I assume you mean by the main power supply switch) to do much of anything useful. If you're trying to conserve power, it's not that much of a savings - BUT, you're more than welcome to.

    2. In the system BIOS (when you first turn on the computer, you'll normally see a prompt such as "Press DEL For Setup" - this may be a function key as well such as F2, F10 or F12 depending on your BIOS. Go into BIOS by pressing the associated key and check through ADVANCED and POWER settings until you find a setting indicating Power Loss and what to do when power loss is detected. Your machine is most likely set up to TURN ON after a power loss - set this to Leave Off or Ignore depending on the options you have. (Every time you turn off the vacation switch, it's detected as a power outage and the machine acts accordingly.)

    3. The hard drive will not be damaged by this setting (above) -- it's going to power up normally as if you had hit the power button on the front of the unit. It's when you LOSE power that you have risks of data corruption, etc.

    Hope this helps!
