I need some advice, my laptop has suddenly developed the irritating habit of randomly shutting down despite having all the shutdown/sleep options set to 'Never', even with a full battery and/or on mains power. I am running Win 8.1 and have been for many months before this issue arose. I would be grateful for any suggestions you may be able to offer.

Thanks for responding Spuds, I have followed the advice and given my machine a good blow job(?). I will post if it works. Once again, many thanks.
