The default action is NOT to shutdown after a scan - so that must have been changed.

You don't say what version you have - the latest being 9.0.2021:
Open the Scan settings for the scan that you are running > Scheduling - uncheck the 'Shut down the system after the scan finishes' option.

It can also be a windows or bios setting that causes it to shutdown.

Or a lack of routine system maintenance.  Excessive heat production can be an issue.  Ever clean it?  Know how?
