Could be heat buildup, is the bottom of the laptop toasty when this occurs?

Ventilation can be a prob with laptops and gaming often pushes the hardware a lot more than just using office.

When i'm using my laptop at home, I have two hard rubber strips (approx .5cm) each side under the Lt, this ensures that there is an airflow going under the Lt. You can, of course, buy accesseries that do just this, except for more money.

This may not be your prob, but worth a go.

Hope this helps.
