Edited out the rest since you've said that's not the problem -_-

Check Event Viewer.... this the OS logs.

If an application is causing the safe shutdown, it should be logged.
Once again...

in other maybe unrelated news, I just did a windows update which contained the IE 8 update and went to shut down the computer, and it has been sitting at the "windows is shutting down" screen for a good 15 minutes. the overheating issue was my first thought. cleaned HSF of Thermal paste, and reapplied artic fox to the NB, SB, HSF.

The only system event I saw that happened around the last shut down.... "The ATI Poller service entered the stopped state"

From My experience that has usually been the case, where the mobo recognizes the overheat and just shuts off.

I am going to try a more powerful GPU, then change the PSU, and if that doesn't fix it the IDFK!

If nothing in the event log sticks out, you can also try installing SpeedFan (free), turn logging on for temps, and then rerun the scenario.

I have eliminated any overheating issues. Changed the psu and It stopped shutting down when stressed.... How Ever I still can't windows to shut down/ power down. It hangs on Windows is shutting down your computer. First Thing i did to eliminate easy stuff was run Memtest 86 just to rule out bad ram. I reformatted and tried xp Pro, loaded my software and drivers..... Same problem won't power down. So I figured maybe its a software issue. Wipe the hdd again and loaded Tiny XP, once it loaded up. First Thing I did was try to shut it down to test my software theory. Guess What? Problem is still there. Next thing I did was to update to the latest BIOS, thinking maybe its a BIOS issue. NO LUCK there either.
