The first thing you need to do is clean the heatsink on your laptop. The heatsink is a piece of metal that dissipates heat away from the cpu, and is cooled by the fan on your laptop. If it's overheating and shutting off, it's either a clogged heatsink, or the fan is not turning. Get a can of compressed air, or use an air compressor if you have access to one (set at 80 psi).
You need to blast air into the grill on the laptop where the hot air comes out. This will likely cause a cloud of dust to come out of the bottom of the laptop where the fan is. This is a good thing. Also, remove the battery from your laptop and plug in the power cord. If it still won't power on when plugged in (with no battery) then the laptop is likely dead. Acer will usually repair a laptop for $199 so this may be the way to go.

Let me know how you make out!

When playing certain "Time Management" games my laptop suddenly shuts down. On occasion when I turn it back on it goes through 'repair' and then 'system restore' and still gets hot and shuts down.

Sounds to me like you have a cooling fan issue. Sometimes blowing it out will fix it. Other times it will need to be taken apart and cleaned and new thermal compound put on the cpu

Could be Heat, sounds like the system is shutting down to protect the processor. Let it sit shut down over night and see if it runs longer when it's cooled down. Is the fan running?
