Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
TURNS ON AND OF BY ITSELF AND IS VERY HOT
When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this.

Your power management in Windows is corrupted. I would do a system restore to an earlier date.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

SOURCE: MY TOSHIBA TURNS ITSELF OFF.
There are several reasons to this problem but the first reason may be because of over heating problem therefore just check the processor fan whether it is running in its speed or not.
Just put the heatsink paste in the processor which also may solve the problem

Yes, it could be, but it could also be that your heatsink that sits on top of the processor has come loose, therfore it cannot transfer the heat to all the little blades for the fan to blow on to keep the processor cool. So, the processor overheats, making the computer shutdown automatically to prevent from destroying your processor.
This is a safety feature that most computers have, however, if your processor keeps overheating over and over, you could destroy it, so for right now, the best thing to do if you have to use your laptop is to stay away from programs that use the processor alot, like games, and video players or editors.

Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.
Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.
If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.
Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.
check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease
hope this helps
