reason for system shutdown

I was just wondering if there is way to know why the system has shut down. I have an FC3 and was on vacation. I was getting onto the system through ssh. But sometime later the system was powered off. I asked someone back at my lab to restart it. I check through "last" command that it was on for just 1 hour. I could not find the reason. How do i find the reason for shutdown.
