Yep, but unfortunately there is not enough details in such a copy/paste.

Ideally you should:

  1. Save existing logs to a backup copy.
  2. Delete the "current" logs.
  3. Restart the machine (having the machine not connected to *anything* like network, external devices, WiFi, etc.)
  4. Wait until the shutdown issue happens again
  5. Restart the machine and copy the event logs to (say) a USB stick
  6. Compress the logs in a .zip file
  7. Attach the zip file to your next post or upload it to *any* file sharing site and post the link to it.

A "complete" cycle of the System log should "normally" start with event log 6009 (start of the OS):


followed by a 6005 (event log started):


and end with eventlog

6006 (event log stopped):


Remember that there are three "main" event logs:

  1. Application
  2. Protection
  3. System
