It happened again this morning, and after it rebooted the display driver went bogus, filling the screen with magenta crawling lines.
I just went to the nVidia site and downloaded and installed the latest driver, and I hope that will fix it. A graphics driver crash certainly could cause the symptoms I have been seeing: The screen instantly going black, and then the computer rebooting.

I am virtually certain it is not related to power.

And since it has a battery as well as a wall brick which is plugged in, I don't believe there was any other power problem.
One time I had a power failure here, and my computers which had batteries just kept running. The batteries act like a poor man's UPS.
