For quite some time now, my desktop (which runs 24/7 generally) will shut down after around 24-48 hours of running. As far as I can tell, nothing in particular is forcing the shut down. After taking a look at Event Viewer, there are a couple of events that occur at the time of shutdown consistently. However, I am not sure if these events are the cause of the shutdown or the result of an unexpected shutdown. The associated Event Viewer Logs can be seen below.

OVRServiceLauncher seems to consistently throw an error (accompanied by warnings), all of which are associated with an Oculus Rift runtime. Though I'm unsure if this is a cause of effect.

As far as I can tell, there are no overheating issues or hardware failures.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

  • Have you tried to remove or update the Oculus Rift runtime? – Ramhound Feb 10 at 20:26
  • I have tried disabling the Oculus VR Runtime Service to no avail so far. – hotelmariofan Feb 10 at 20:39

    Sometimes disabling isn't enough, I also asked if you had tried to uninstall it. You should also try updating it. – Ramhound Feb 10 at 20:41

    I noticed that you are running of trace buffers when this happens. Try to start Perfmon → Data Collector Sets → Startup Event Trace Session → right click Defender API Logger → Properties, in the Trace Session tab change Stream Mode to File and Real Time, in the File tab under Log Mode tick Circular, finally click OK. Undo if it doesn't work. – harrymc Feb 10 at 21:15
