You're either experiencing harddrive overload, which comes from a pooched drive, or the console is overheating. Try standing it vertically in an open area or even pointing a fan at it. 360s may not seem to be, but after a while a fluxuation of just a few degrees in temperature will cause the computer to seize and shut itself down.
