    All day at first, then shorter periods of time. I purchased and am using a Belkin stand w/fan under it and now, no problems! Thanks for the help.

SOURCE: My Toshiba Satellite A75-s206 shuts down by itself.

I own one and just came across the best solution.  I'm assuming by shuts off, you mean it just completely blinks out in an instant without warning - this is the processor getting too hot and shutting off to protect itself.  First you will make sure the fan & heat sinks are clean and working properly, then you will enable the power management features of the processor (Toshiba's power utility does not do this).
First, of course, get the canned air and blow out all the fans and heat sinks so they can work properly.
Next, download and install the RightMark CPU Clock Utility (search google for it).  It will take a little reading up to figure out how to use it, but here's the basics: 1. Go to the "profiles" page  a. under "Profile Selection" set it to use "Performance on Demand" for both AC power and battery (current and startup).  b. Then hit the "Defaults" button at the bottom, and then hit "Apply" 2. Now, expand the "profiles" tree (on the left side, there should be a little + next to it) and go to the "Performance on demand" profile and do the following: a. Click the "CPU Settings" button at the top. b. Hit "Defaults" at the bottom of the page c. For both AC power and battery, check "Use throttling", and then check all the indexes (0-7) in the list below. d. Below that, set the "target CPU usage level" to 75%. e. Hit "Apply"

If that all works properly, you should be able to go to the "Monitoring" page and watch your processor throttle up and down automatically as needed.  You should find that within a minute the fan gets a lot quieter because the processor is so much cooler.  Now that it's running properly, you can open the "Settings" page and check the boxes "start minimized to system tray" and "Run at windows startup", now it will run completely automatically, you won't even notice it except the fans will be quieter and your battery will last longer.
What it does: this laptop uses a Pentium4 processor, and by default WindowsXP does not manage the processor power settings on "desktop" processors.  Toshiba's power utility also does not manage these settings very well, so your processor is always running near full power no matter if it's playing a video game or just editing a text document.  The RightMark utility automatically adjusts the processor's clock speed, operating voltage, and throttle according to how much speed you need at any given moment.

SOURCE: My Toshiba Satellite L310 cannot shut down,

Try this, in the power option (control panel) and in one of the tabs there is an option called "turn APM (advanced power management) on", check it. I think this will solve the problem.

go to control panel , sounds - under windows sign off choose no sound for this event.

If all else fails depress the power button until it powers off (longer than 5-10 seconds) or remove battery. after restart go into bios setup and reset default values and re-start your computer
