Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
This may happen due to incorrect settings provided in the control panel -> power options.
open Control Panel -> power options -> change plan settings -> change advanced settings.
There find some options to restore your notebook power plan settings to default and click that button. This may vary between operating systems. I am attaching the image which describes about that in windows 7
I hope this helps you to solve the issue.

You can try the following steps:
- Unplug the power cord from the laptop and remove the battery then press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds
- Put the battery back in, turn on the laptop without plugging the power cord to the laptop then with the power cord (If this didn't resolve the issue)
- Remove the battery and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, after that, plug the power cord and turn on the laptop (if this didn't resolve the issue)
- Turn off your laptop then drain the remaining power by pressing the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds. Open your laptop and reseat the CMOS battery.
- Remove the power cord and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, disconnect the Hard drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnec the hard drive
- Remove the Optical Drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnect the optical drive
- Remove the memory chip, if you have 2 memory chips installed in the 2 memory slots (remove both of them) now test each one of the memory to each slots turning on the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue) Put the memory chip back in
- Reseat the CPU and try to make sure that it's installed properly. Turn on the laptop and test if it's gonna work (If this didn't resolve the issue)
- Reseat the power cords coming from the power supply of the laptop and test the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue)
- Disconnect everything and just leave the CPU installed and turn on the laptop.
- If all else fails, there's a big possibility that the problem may be with the power supply or the motherboard of the laptop.
(Note: Try to clean it properly if there is a large amount of dust in the laptop)

The most common reasons are the power adapter/cord and power jack.
If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.
The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.
If no change, the power adapter is faulty and needs replacement.
Hope this helps.

Do you mean this does not happen when running from battery? Howlong does it take approximately to shut down once you have started it?
Please answer these questions so that we can continue with the diagnosis.
