No lines within '/var/log/acpid', and then server restarted


My Fedora Core 2 server restarted suddenly on Jul 17, and I don't know
the reason.

Within '/var/log/acpid' file, I found this:

[Wed Jun 28 21:20:33 2006] 1 rule loaded
[Wed Jun 28 21:38:00 2006] exiting
[Wed Jun 28 21:55:36 2006] starting up
[Wed Jun 28 21:55:36 2006] 1 rule loaded
[Wed Jun 28 22:01:58 2006] exiting
[Wed Jun 28 22:06:46 2006] starting up
[Wed Jun 28 22:06:46 2006] 1 rule loaded
[Sat Jul 17 05:13:16 2006] starting up
[Sat Jul 17 05:13:16 2006] 1 rule loaded
[Sat Jul 17 05:23:06 2006] starting up
[Sat Jul 17 05:23:06 2006] 1 rule loaded

This is very odd, since there are 2-5 lines per day, but no one from Jun 28
to Jul 17.

Could be this the reason of the shutdown? These are the contents of

Jul 16 03:29:17 pc02 sshd(pam_unix)[11721]: session closed for user root
Jul 17 05:13:14 pc02 syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
Jul 17 05:13:14 pc02 syslog: syslogd startup succeeded
Jul 17 05:13:14 pc02 kernel: klogd 1.4.1, log source = /proc/kmsg started.
Jul 17 05:13:14 pc02 syslog: klogd startup succeeded

There are no errors before the 'restart'. Any similar experience?

Thank you very much

What do you have under /etc/acpi/events or under similar location?
