    I am messing around my FiOS Verizon Routers' settings over WiFi and I have about 5-6 programs running, one of them is Transmission. And all of a sudden my MBA restarted on me.

    It's highly suspicious. Can someone help me by telling me where to look in th elogs to find out what caused it to restart?

    It appears the computer didn't restart. I was just logged out as user (presented with a username/ password screen).

    I am looking at the System logs.

    Chrome and VMWare Fusion seemed to have caused trouble.

    Prior to being logged-out, I ran a speedtest and clicked by mistake on a button ("start now"), it was a stupid ad offering to run a scan of my Mac. I was on the phone/ distracted, browsed back (without clicking the scan button) and shortly after I was logged-out.
