Default Understanding Event Viewer???>>>>>

I am trying to use event viewer and I am having trouble understanding all the jargon. I left for the weekend and came home today to find my computer restarted and with the prompt for my bios password up. How can I figure out when this happened? In event viewer what would indicate if the computer has been restarted or if someone was trying to enter a password? Please help me out.

check system log for error reports.

select Start > Control Panel > Settings > System
(in the Classic-style Start menu, Control Panel is under Settings).

Click Advanced > System And Recovery > Settings.

In the System Failure section, clear the Automatically Restart check box, then click OK.
