Sorry for the late reply, but it may help someone else with the same problem.
Are you using a USB2 port, perhaps it's may not be getting enough power. In the orginal Lacie box was a double USB dongle - it allows you to take the power from two USB ports and send them to the Silverscreen, if the SScreen was getting quite enough power.

Most probably your hardware ie graphic card do not support software requirements.
Autocad 2009 system requirements for Win XP.
32-bit AutoCAD 2009
Running under Windows XP:
•Microsoft Windows XP SP2 operating system •Intel® Pentium® 4 processor or AMD Athlon®, 2.2 GHz or greater or Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 1.6 GHz or greater •1 GB RAM •750 MB free hard disk space for installation •1024x768 VGA with true color •Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (SP1 or higher)
If you are using AutoCAD for 3D modeling, you should bump up your system as follows:
•Intel Pentium 4 processor or AMD Athlon, 3.0 GHz or greater or Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 2.0 GHz or greater •2 GB RAM or greater •2 GB of additional free hard disk space •1,280 x 1,024 32-bit color video display adapter (true color) 128 MB or greater, OpenGL or Direct3D capable workstation class graphics card.
1. Autocad uses a lot of memory. Make sure you the maximum ram installed. You can check the virtual memory if that does not work.
2. Shutting down in the middle of an operation can be that the unit is overheating. Use a cooler, docking station, or stand the book on the side with the laptop lid open about 45 degree angle. Leave it on to see if it shuts down within the same time as when it was laying flat with Autocad running. If it takes longer, the problem may be a fan not cooling properly or allow more cooling during the use of Autocad.
