Default System turns off at random

The last few days I've been noticing my system has been shutting down at random. I am never in the room when it happens but it seems to happen after being left idle for 20-30mins. When I boot back up there are no signs that it shut down unexpectedly. Windows boots as if it was shut down properly.
Temps are fine. Everything else works just fine. I tried stressing it to see if it was something in my OC that wasn't stable but no dice. I can use it for hours on end and its fine but if I leave the room for a bit it shuts off. I have all the sleep and hibernate settings turned off. I don't even use a screen saver. The only thing that powers off is my monitor after 45mins. This is happening in both Windows 7 and Windows 8. They are on different drives too. I can't figure out for the life of me what would be causing it. Reset bios settings to default and got rid of my oc but yet it still seems to happen.
Any ideas what the poop is going on with my system?
