Question about Apple MacBook PC Notebook
When I turn on my Macbook, after few minutes (5-7mins) working on it, it Shuts Down automatically
I think this is a battery problem. Even if you charge it etc. if your battery id faulty this could happen. I've had this problem several times (yes, several) and if your computers less than a year old they wont make you pay for the battery. Don't send it, take it into the store. Hope that helps.

You don't say if you have the computer plugged in or not, but if this happens with the battery, then it's possible the battery is bad. Apple had a batch of bad MBP batteries that it replaced last year. If you had one of these batteries, the charge would be lucky to last 10 minutes and when it died it really died, it didn't go to sleep like a MBP is supposed to do when the battery runs low.

You Need to get the Trash Thermal Factory Paste off the Heatsink/CPU/GPU and clean all components 100% Spotless. (De-natured alcohol And a Clean lint free cotton cloth)..Then apply a small ammount of AS thermal paste to the pads on the Components only. Do not get it on anything else as it has conductive characteristics. (Or at Least Semi-conductive)..
(Arctic silver = AS)
Well Known Issue on these models..

Like Ekse said, this is more than likely an overheating issue. If your internal fans aren't working properly, you can always go out and buy a laptop pad with a built in fan that might keep it cooler longer and keep it from shutting down so quickly.
Here's an example of what I'm talking about:
Hope this helps!

Possibly a overheating issue. Make sure the fans in the laptop are working and feel does the laptop get unusually hot?
If it is a overheating issue if you have the technical skills you could open the laptop and clean or replace the fans. Althought this probably will void your warranty. But then again i took my acer apart 3 times and still got it thrue warranty. If you choose to do it its your responsibility.
