Computer shutting down overnight

Is there any setting within Norton Security that is making my PC shutdown overnight or after long periods of inactivity?

I'm a computer guy and think I am aware of all of my Windows Control Panel POWER settings and don't think the issue is there.  It only started randomly shutting down when I installed the product.  It is not consistent, and some mornings my PC is up, but generally it's powered down.

In case I'm not a smart as I think I am, can you propose any other issues outside of Norton that may make this happen?

Thank you!

Hello Derek. Check your scan settings in your Norton dashboard. Make sure you have "After Scan Completion" set to remain on and prevent standby checked as well. Also in your windows power settings under advanced settings for the power scheme you are using make sure you do not have hybrid sleep set.
