Mine is about 3 years old and it too use to switch off, I bought this cooler fans which connect using a usb and I place the laptop ontop and now it does not switch off automatically, a few days ago I took the laptop to work minus my cooler fan stand, it started switching off , I then placed it facing close to a table fan and that stopped it from switching off, it appears this mesh laptops generate hugh amounts of heat and when they get heated up, they switch off

sems a bit early to switch off at biit due to heat but is lways worth cleaning out the fan grills.
