I was running the disk defragmenter yesterday and it was taking a long long time... anyway i went to bed and left it on doing over night
unfortunatly i woke up and the laptop had turned itself off
im hoping its turned itself off due to endless hours of inactivity, its a laptop, and i turned off all the settings which turn itself off however, but it may still have, i even left the lid open in order to keep it on.
Anyway i wonder if there is a way of seeing if it did actually finish? or possibly a way to view the report?

analyze, to see any fragmentation left.

If your defrag took such a long time,im guessing there are a lot of unwanted temp files etc.
Try running ccleaner first click here then disc cleanup,reboot and run your defrag.

I agree the laptop has gone to sleep due to inactivity.You should be able to change the power settings within control panel.

thankyou both of you, i never thought of analysing when it was the obvious answer lol, but anyway it says i "do not need to degrag this volume" which i assume means it finished
i shall try ccleaner at a later date and defrag it again anyway, thanks alot
