Utility to track boots and uptime.
« on: July 04, 2016, 05:25:43 PM »
To help diagnose a system (Windows 7 Pro x64) that has been rebooting by itself on what appears to be a fairly regular basis, I'm looking for a utility to keep a log of the date and time for each time it boots up.  Ideally, it would also keep track of the time elapsed between successive boots.

What I'm trying to find out is whether there is a pattern in the reboots or whether they happen completely at random.

I was hoping to avoid playing with logs at the command line, but your linked post got me thinking and after a little searching online, I found a solution that does what I need, and then some.

As so often the case, it comes from Nir Sofer:  MyEventViewer

Thanks for setting me in the right direction.

In our family it's really simple: everyone has a pair and everyone gets up at seven o'clock. No utility needed. :Thmbsup:

Give this a shot: http://techibee.com/...-for-uptime-exe/1728

It's an updated version of the original MS uptime (command line) utility that will quickly list out all of the boot and shutdown events.

Didn't need to, there's a filter attached to that post that you can import into the Windows Event Log Viewer that filters all power events.
