If you cpu fan is running then it is most likely overheating. Dust gets into the cooling fan and heat sink assembly reducing their ability to keep the cpu cool. You can try blowing compressed air but the best solution is to disassemble and clean it by hand.

Tractor runs for five minutes and then shuts down

I suggest if you change the spark plug on it, also check the oil level and temperature of the engine. If it is overheating it will shut down.

Air conditioner will cool for five minutes and then turn off. comes on and off sporatically but never stays on for more than five minutes.

could be the pressure cut off switch is working out in advance as it cut off. If there is enough cooling then it can be possible that the filter is clogged and the condenser is clogged. If by choosing a higer fan speed for blowing iff the ac goes on for more time, then clean up all the fins and filters to make it more efficient to heat exchange, if not change the thermostat/ pressure cut off switch.

Mine shut down during my normal working day. Same thing, turn it off and on again - screen flashes up briefly then flicks off again.
Called Samsung and they are replacing it with a refurbished screen under warranty.

System shuts off after approximately five minutes of game play

Make sure your system is well ventilated and you keep the vents clean with compressed air and vacuum the vents out also, it may be overheating which means your system will shut down itself.
