does it do so at any specific point in the game? i dont think that'll be the case, because those are normally restarts.
is there a shutdown time, or instantaneous turn off?
if the latter, you could be in trouble. (have you played around with bios settings?)
notice any anomalies in your system?

feel free to mail me at

Yes . instantaneous turn off

Oh! and Problem Solved!
It Seems that dust accumulated was preventing the fan to work.
So I cleaned it up.

I know this post is old, But I wanted to share this. I had the same problem,at first I thought it may be a virus but cpu temp was high. Did some looking around and this is how I fixed it.Go to control panel right click java icon click open,uncheck check for updates automatically,Then click check once a month, Rstart computer.
I hope this will help some of you. It took me 5 days to track this down.
