Why does my PC reboot every 23 minutes?

Every 23 minutes in my system event log (Win 7) I see an error with event id 6008. It tells me "the previous system shutdown... was unexpected". When I work at the computer it doesn't happen so it must be something that happens during idle time.

"I disabled the defrag task in the task scheduler (even though the history shows no sign of failure) and so far today haven't seen any reboot even though the system has been idle. Will leave for another day or two then re-enable the task and see what happens.

Tried running defrag manually but it doesn't seem to do anything - just quits and I see no process running in task manager."
