Hi, i'm using fedora 23 for about a year now and just found my laptop shutdown w/o me initiating it. this is the first time happening.. I browsed through the logfiles to find what initiated the shutdown, but only find daemons getting the sigterm etc signal.

What should i grep for?

[edit] i found something that may be related:
