This sounds like a heat issue. CPU's have failsafes built into the BIOs so they turn themselves off to avoid damage.
Make sure the fans are functioning, and that the area the console is located in has space to ventilate properly.

There's a switch in
the back, the only benefit of using the power button is that it can be turned
back on with the controller. Dont use the switch when your game is saving or
anything is downloading because you could corrupt the saved game/download (I
don't think it'll let you turn it off from the front button when it's writing
to the hard drive- the switch in the back actually cuts off the power.).
Generally there are a couple of things that can cause this. Bad installs of games, and more commonly thermal damage. The bad news is it will probably have to be repaired and Sony generally charges about $150 for that. Hopefully its under warranty? =)
There is some talk that the new firmware download may have altered physical parts that control the temperature inside the unit. Although that's just heresay i've been hearing more and more people thinking this is the case.
this is what u do! you connect your control direct to your ps3. and then you hold the power button for 5 seconds!! the system will turn on!!!remove your finger for a second and hold the power button till you hear 2beeps then remove your finger and the system will shut off!! this is a manuel reset!!! the system will turn back on!! asking u to connect your controller!! you already have it connected. then it will give you about 6 options!! you will choose RESTORE FILES!!! your system will check for your system defaults!! then it will tell you that you have corrupted files!! and proceed with it!!! it will fix if you have problems with your controls,if it doesnt play games,blue ray,if it freeze, system shutting off,icon problems,only playing sertting games or movies!!! if you have problems or any question feel free to ask!! i know is fustrating!!! i did some research and this is what another expert said to do
Power Light Shuts Off
If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
Power Light Flashes
If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair
