Does it happen only when on battery or also with charger connected?
Suggest to take out the battery for an extended period of time and see if power-off still happens.

How olde is this laptop?

A cooling fan as you describe may not be effective...; if the actual vents on the laptop are clogged up with dust...

Get a can of compressed air and - with battery removed and no power adapter attached either - remove any removable panels on the base. Then blow out all vents and open areas with the compressed air...

Then replace panels etc. and see if the problem persists afterwards?

It's almost certainly overheating and probably needs a good clean out. Most likely the CPU heat-sink inside needs cleaning and/or the fans themselves.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
