Will try the GPU setting, it is a rather oldish card GTX 1050 Ti.

No plugins, they make you lazy...

I also prefer vanilla setups and absolutely hate helper toolbars.

Sigil plugins do not make you lazy.

You know you can build epubs by hand, right? You don't worry about Sigil making you lazy?

Was a joke, forgive me Can't live without Sigil

I have one plugin installed, the footnote plugin. But the shut down was happening long before I recently discovered the plugin here on mobileread.

I have disabled the GPU setting, will give feedback if it still shuts down.

Disable the GPU, no random shutdowns... yet. Will notify if there is a random shutdown and add what I was doing that caused the shutdown.

This is expected if your Windows update broke your gpu graphics driver. If you ever update that driver or a new Windows update fixes it, you can always try re-enabling gpu acceleration. And if still needed, disable it again.

This exact thing happened with a recent macOS update on my machine and it was eventually fixed by Apple after a few point updates about 2 months later.

Thanks for feedback.

Did anyone else from this thread track down what was causing their systems to become unstable? if so, we would love to hear back so that others can benefit.

Thanks,
