hmmm, does this problem happen when you've been using the computer for a long time? if so, it may be the proc overheating and shutting itself down. Try reseating the heatsink / reapplying thermal paste on the processor, hopefully that will help.

I would add that when you re-apply the paste, apply a thin layer. A paper thin application is recommended, but I don't know how anyone does that. I just apply what I consider thin and it works. Too much paste causes problems, too.
