    Default Unsure of what happened, but it can't be good

    ok, so I'm running a program with a LOT of data, which I am told I should expect to use a LOT of memory. And while running the program, my computer shuts down after maybe 15 minutes of running. I didn't get any exception or anything (that I was told about), my computer just turned off. When I started it back up, Windows just acted like nothing happened. No "unsual shut down" messages or anything.

    If it was a memory problem, isn't Java locked down to a limited amount of allocated memory? So if it was using just way too much memory, the JVM should have shut down before my computer, right?

    I'm a bit lost here. Not sure what to make of it.

    That's Java's "Write Once, Ruin Anything" feature. It wasn't Java. Are you sure it wasn't Mr Clippy deciding you'd had enough computer for one day, or an automatic update that needed a reboot but only got half of one?

    Well I didn't receive any noticifications of a reboot or anything (don't think I was even connected to the internet at the time). The only thing that was running was the program. My computer started up normally (perhaps even a bit faster than usual) and is acting normal. I just put it down for the next few hours, as I suspect it has had a rough day, lol.
