access the bios...see if there are any settings there regarding your problem...you might get lucky and find a setting that's causing it...be careful in there and make sure if you want to exit w/out saving changes you hit esc. ..to exit saving changes hit F10

I think that it has got something to do with the power supply because their won't be a setting which tells your pc/laptop to turn itself off...

Maybe your battery is just dead. Try getting a new battery. Or let me know what kind of lappy it is and i will look for a new one for you.
