Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
My laptop is plugged in and it seems the AC power is fully functional. The most frequent times that it shuts off are when there is a CD inserted in the computer, or I am playing an online game, such as Guild Wars. I have no clue why this happens, and it is very frustrating. I am even using a Targus cooling unit, set under my laptop. Someone please help!
My Pavilion zd8000 Notebook randomly shuts down when left unattended for any length of time. As long as I am working on it it will stay up, but if I step away just to take a phone call...CRASH! I lose my work I lose whatever I was working on.
It is really annoying.
I am thin king this could be a bios problem,
Probably some applications in background taking excessive CPU resources. Please click on Ctrl+Alt+Del to open Task manager and go to Processes tab, locate sort the applications by CPU and Memory usage, and tell me top 3 for CPU and Mem usage so I can figure out next steps for you

I think ur laptop goes to power saving mode.Right click on the desktop then choose personalize or properties if u have xp.
Then click on screen saver at the bottom click change power settings.Now if the power saver is checked then uncheck it and choose balanced in that change the timings as when it should sleep according to ur wish.
If u have any other problems please ask me..
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..
