If you feel the underside of the laptop is it getting excessively hot? A laptop cooler might help. You can also try blowing compressed air through the vents to clear out dust. Opening it up and cleaning will be best, but I don't recommend doing this if you're the least bit unsure. –  Karan Jun 7 '13 at 2:25

When processor reach the max temp for self protection it shuts down to avoid Heating Up. Seach if there are any BIOS updates for your model. Or Clean it up.
