When the computer shuts down, this is either a hardware problem or driver problem. Make sure your video driver is up to date. Make sure that all cooling devices in your computer case are working properly and that your CPU is not overheating.
All drivers are up to date, and my temperature reading programs aren't showing any issues. Like I said before, I can get other programs that work the PC much harder and hotter to run just fine.

There really is nothing built into the Lightroom software that can shut down a PC, I don't even think such a thing can be programmed. So it's not Lightroom itself, it is Lightroom interacting with your hardware. I would continue to check the hardware, such as memory
my PC shuts off completely w/o warning and begins to restart with the "Start Windows Normally" prompt.
If rebooting without going through a BSOD, it could be a power supply problem.
Dunno why it would happen on Lightroom's watch, but still.. - could be a power supply problem.
I've also noticed that it happens occasionally, but not as often, to Photoshop CS6 and Bridge. Only the Adobe products seem to be doing it on my machine. I'm going to try pulling my RAM out and power cables and resetting them, maybe that'll do something.
