Re: my laptop shut down on its own
This usually signifies an overheating problem. You have a couple of choices. 1. Make sure your vents are clean & not obstructed, use on a flat surface. 2. Upgrade your cpu fan to one that has better cooling, or 3. Purchase a laptop cooling pad that sits under the laptop when in use. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate this solution fixya. Thanks.

3 days ago - I have to hold the power button for 5 seconds for my laptop to turn offcompletely. ... I tried removing my battery completely, and started the windows with my A/C adapter and then shut it down ... when i shutdown my pc , my pc has get shutdown but the power light in my cpu tower ... Can't find your answer ?
Try running it on a hard flat surface and see if it runs better. The shutting down could be due to the machine overheating due to poor airflow. Try cleaning the air vents around the case, make sure they are not dusty.
A Does it turn off automatically after few minutes Or
B It fails to shut down when you choose to do so ??
If the system turn off automatically, try to clean the cooling vents and make sure that the system is not overheating
If the system fails to shutdown, test the system in safe mode. Restart and tap F8 repeatedly, select safe mode and press Enter. Once it start in safe mode, try to shutdown. If it able to shut down properly then the problem can be with your antivirus software
go to the powermanagement in the control panel. In it check the settings to turn off system when i press, or shutdown the pc after 30 min change it to never, and turn harddisk off to never. and remove the system from hibernation
i think there are two causes for this reason.1/ ur processer fan is not working properly. at that time u should get this message as thearmal heat. then ur computer shutdown. 2/ setting of power option my be fixed 10 minnutes. we should kee poweroption always never shutdown.
Could be hardware or software problems, IF its hardware issue the only problem makes this if the Cpu fan doesnot work, so the Cpu gets hot and then it shutdown in order not to be damaged. but mostly its software issue that remeber if you installed any program before this is happen, and try to stop shutdown by this command, if you did this and this stop shutting down your laptop this is absolutley software problems or programs conflict:
hit Start, then Run , then type this : shutdown -a
this will stop your shutdown if it works, try to uninstall the last programs causes this issue,if it doesnot let you use safe mode command.
yes there is, go into control panel>power options and choose how long you want the display and computer to stay on for before going on standby.
Turn of the display> change to four hours
Put the computer to sleep>choose never or select a suitable time for when the computer should sleep
