Shuts OFF or reboots?

Off is generally heat--you need to open your computer and clean out the dust bunnies.

Reboots is typically memory, but can be many things.

that sounds like a failing power supply....though, is it ALWAYS like that or if you leave it alone for a while, and come back does it start right up


If it is always like that, I woudl lean toward power supply, if you allow it to cool between sessions, I still say heat
