Is there a way to tell why/how my laptop was restarted?

Windows update? They tend to randomly restart computers.

Hm, that's odd. Apparently my computer did update according to event viewer, but my update log still says the last updates were installed on the 12th. o_O

Probably downloaded then and forced the restart later
Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

It's what Windows 8 loves to do. It downloads and installs updates but then forces you to restart days later if you don't choose to do it sooner.

Yeah, I now know that it was due to updates after checking the Event Viewer a little more. I was just confused because Windows Update told me the last installation was two days ago and not this morning.

It's always Windows Update on my machines. ALWAYS.
