Laptop Swtiching Itself Off

  la la 20:22 24 Jul 2008

My laptop seems to switch itself off periodically in middle of using it.To start it again I have to turn it off wait 20secs and re-start it with enter key.
Any answer to this problem ?

Check your Power Options arent set to power down after a certain amount of time, if this is ok then I'd turn off the laptop and remove the battery for half an hour see if this helps, failing this does your laptop get very hot? if it does then the CPU could be overheating.

If it switches itself off why do have to then switch it off again to restart it? How do know you have to restart it with the enter key? Is it going in hibernation? If so just push and quickly release the power button.
