Look at the windowserver.log

That won't show you when you last shut down. That will only show you your uptime (the time your machine has been on).

I typed last into Terminal, and I have a question:

What's with all the reboots when I hardly ever reboot my system?

 iPad mini 1st gen - iOS 8.0.2
 iPod touch 5th gen - iOS 8.0.2
 Mac mini Server M10 - OS X 10.9.5

Before I explain this, I'll let you think about it for a while.

I believe the question was specific on " last shutdown " and not on " last reboot "

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
