Your issue is Board Flex... The t40/t41 have a split mid section and over time the lifting of the laptop from the base will flex the motherboard which can create a short in the layers of the board, it can also lift the heatsink from the graphics chip which will trigger the thermal controller,
put pressure on the palmrest area to the left side of the touchpad.. then attempt to move the laptop.. see if it stops the shutting down

IBM Thinkpad t40 black screen


Chips DO get loose and what you're experiencing is a common problem with IBM T40's. The solder that holds the graphics processor to the motherboard is cracked and no longre consistantly makes a good connection. This problem can only permanently be resolved with a new motherboard, or reflowing the solder of the GPU chip on the old one with a heat gun. Do a search for "thinkpad solder reflow" in any search engine.

Good luck.
