The laptop word is actually wrong, the passage of the fan will be blocked that is for cooling. If you keep your laptop on bed it will suck the cloth lint and fan revolutions will be hampered that means no cooling. Your laptop is stopping due to stuck fan and overheating. If you can access the fan and try freeing it from hairs and lint then your problem will be solved or call a local computer guy to open the laptop and free the fan of lint .

Have you cleaned it lately? If not that's what they sell those cans of compressed air for. With your computer off bloe the air through all of the vents you can locate to get all of tha accumulated dust that is blocking the airflow out of there!

It sounds like an overheating problem. When it is booted, does it run ok other than just being slow? Check your cooling fan and make sure it is running and not stopped up. That is a number one symtom of overheating is freezing and rebooting by itself. There is a free program called "Motherboard Monitor 5" that will monitor the temp for you and set off an alarm when it is getting to hot. Check that problem first. Hopes this helps!

I bet that you had your laptop on all the time.
Your heat sink is saturated with dust and grit.
you may have to open up the unit and use a can of dust remover to clean the fins on the heat sink out. it is causing your CPU to shut down bucause it is becoming overheated.
Happy Fixing =)

Try to keep as much ventilation under the laptop as possible.
You can pick up a can of power spray and blow out the unit yourself or have a pro. do it for you.
Dust and lint play a deadly part in overheating with laptops.
Walmart has Ventilation trays in which the laptop sits and is cooled by forced air from underneath.
Make sure the direction of air flow is the same as your laptop.
You dont want to push air into a output vent.
