Sounds like an overheating issue. You could try downloading a program called SpeedFan and it should tell you the temperature of your CPU.

You could also try on of those laptop coolers.

It actually is normally a GPU (graphics card) overheat if the comp shuts down like that. If it is CPU you generally get a warning. What graphics card do you have? Of course this is really unlikely i know because of the fact that this isn't a graphically intense product :p

how many leagues are you running? How much RAM do you have? What is your processor speed? Just wondering if your over loading it really as it is quite hefty on the ol' processor sometimes.

well that should be fine, i reccomend downloading a program that shows your GPU and CPU temprature.

try this http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php

note your idle state, and note the temp when processing fixtures etc. Any sharp rises will be your problem as it will be overheating.

I have a acer and mine will do this from time to time..i think its poor air-flow circulation i.e mine usualy will do it if the laptops laid on the bed.

Hope this helps

Here is what I did to fix my over heating temps.

Turn off the laptop. Unplug the power and take off the battery.

Unscrew any of the panels you can to expose the circuits.

Get a high pressure air can and just blow through the vents. Some vents you can access inside so blow from the inside out, others you will have to blow the dust bacinto the laptop but you should beable to just blow it out from the exposed panels.

I had lots of dust in mine and temps were around 65 at idle. Now they are 40 at idle.

This thread inspired me to do a test tonight. I'm surprised the damn thing wasn't melting :D I got a bit of the dust out but it needs the compressed air treatment and I might stick some more RAM in too, see if that helps.
