Hi Luis G. O.!

There is a log that shows when your computer shuts down. Go to the CONTROL PANEL and double-click on ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, then double-click on EVENT VIEWER. The new window that appears will have two panes inside of it. The left side pane will show APPLICATION, SECURITY and SYSTEM headings. Left-click on SYSTEM once to highlight it. Then in the right pane, go through the list and double-click on items listed that have eventlog as the SOURCE. The EVENT PROPERTIES window will now open. Look in the DESCRIPTION text box and see if The Event log service was stopped is listed there. If it isn't go on to the next item in the list that has eventlog as the source. Once you find the log that shows the The Event log service was stopped in the description, then you have found when the computer was turned off.

Likewise, you can look through the Event Logs and when you find one with the description of The Event log service was started, then you know when the computer was turned back on.
