I am well aware of the SHUTDOWN command, thank you. :)  I thought he was
talking about something else more devious.   Anyways, I found out what
the problem was and I will share with you all becuase it might prove
helpful for someone out there.

The mud is running on a linux system and whenever I would disconnect or
be disconnected from the account on which the mud was running (I'm not
talking about logging out, but actually having the connection to the
account broken).  After an hour or so the machine would send a signal to
logout any idle accounts which the mud would then interrpret as an order
to shutdown.  Does that make sense?  I hope this helps someone out
