your question is quite vague...it's almost like asking 'why doesn't my car run?'

1- Let us know if it's a laptop or desktop
2- Explain what you are doing when it shuts off
3- Does it shut off and then restart?
4- How old is the computer?

In addition to above:
Install HWMonitor and report back the temperatures (in degrees C) and this will help us in diagnosing the problem also.

Another question:
Have you made any changes to hardware or software recently?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
