Have you checked the power options?

does anyone know if the sensor that tells the bios the cpu temp is in the cpu or on the m/b thanks

When it turns itself off is there any indication light showing? I.e. power light or is it totally dead. Thinking it could be the power adaptor or power source if on battery.

Mine goes off when it wants, but windows is still running in the background. its just that I cannot see nothing on screen, yours may be the same as mine screen just does not show any Graphic but still like a one colour but only pale colour. May be a HP Problem, Windows turn off sounds when pressing the power switch and it then shuts down. will start normal after pressing button till next time
