Well this has happened to me on a few times with a few different problems.

1) If on battery power and the battery slips a little to lose contact it will shut off. I found this out the other day and I just taped the bottom.

2) Its over heating, you may need to check the vents for the heat sink and take a dust blower can and blow all the air out. I did this as well the other day because my fans were always on, now they are whisper quiet.

3)If on A/C power, the power jacks solder points could be lose and broken, Ive had this happen 2 years ago. They cost like 3 bucks on ebay and takes few minutes to solder it back on. Mine hasnt broke since.

Laptops and some many problems... I love them1!!
