The reason it is shutting down is because it is overheating. It used to happen to me as well. Are you using this on a bed or other soft object?

    Try propping something under it, but make sure the object doesnt block the cooling fans. This is most liely the problem. Hope this helps.

I have HP Computer. Pulled out keyboard cable from tower When I put it back into my HP tower the keyboard wont work.

If you have an older computer, the connection could be ps/2. The current standard connector is usb which is hot pluggable. Older connectors are not hot pluggable which means they are only detected during the boot process. Not a problem, all you have to do is reboot the computer and the keyboard should work. Note: usb is rectangular, ps/2 is round.

I have a Hp wireless multimedia keyboard and mouse. My computer crashed. mouse keyboard are not working ctrl, alt, delete does nothing. I had to manually shut it down and lose what I was working on. When I...

no computer , nor OS stated. OS= operating system.
no mouse model number either, but is some wireless mouse and battery dead. sure.
why not plug in a wired USB mouse, and use that,
that ALWAYS works , and has NO BATTERY.
keep one handy at all times just like this, battery dies
use it, and save you files first. no reason at all to lose data.ever.
there are hot keys too that will save the fails, and exit.
learn them at MS dot com, or ask but if KBD is dead
then use a wired USB keyboard and or mouse.

I'm betting the battery is long gone dead. as ALL DO.

is this some old XP PC? running XP Os.
good luck if that is the case, (its a virus magnet, and may be why the mouse dont work)

When I put the computer to "sleep" it decides to come back on by itself. This happens frequently, but not all the time. What could be causing it to do this? Also, if I shut the computer down,...

Sleep on Vista is a combination of Standby and Hibernate. First it will go into Standby and then later if a laptop it will go into Hibernate. Any movement of mouse or keyboard may cause it to wake up.
Some computers will wake on Lan. If you have ethernet connected this may be the cause. You can turn this off by using Device Manager - Hardware - Select ethernet adapter - driver - Advanced - look for Wake on Lan and Pattern Matching and disable this.
ALso check your BIOS settings and disable all Wake on XXX settings.
