You probably have something wrong with the fan inside. Open up your Slim and clean it out real good and try it to see if the problem goes away. I sometime see that dust clogs the fan and stops it from spinning.

After running for a few minutes the picture abruptly shuts off and turns back on for a few minutes then shuts off. This cycle repeats itself over and over.

Make sure the top and back of it are not dirty or obstructed, it sounds like it is overheating and shutting down to protect itself. Or your main power board is going out.

Bosch Axxis WTE86300US turns itself off after ten minutes, won't turn back on for a few minutes after that

I would bet you have a bad sensor. There are a couple of sensors that monitor heat. When it gets too hot they shut it down as a safety precaution. Once it is cool enough it will start up again.

It shuts down to protect itself from overheating, looks like you tried to use it too much without sorting the problem out.
You can try and give it a good clean out. Google cleaning computers.

The PS2 shuts off automatically when acquiring heat, it might have been cutting off due to excessive heat or overheating. If the system does not power on, well the internal power supply unit might have gone busted and generally a hardware failure causing this issue.

Lenovo laptop shutdown suddenly after working for a while

Hi James, replace the fan or If it's still under warranty have it serviced. Suggest you stop turning it on until the fan is replaced. It could be the fan cooling the CPU. You don't want it to fry.
The shut down process is normal when over heating is detected by the system.

Good luck!
