Compaq CQ60 sometimes shuts off when lid closed

Sometimes, when we close the laptop lid, it shuts it off. When we turn it back on, it shows a red screen that says it shut down abnormally.

This has been happening for about 4 months on a 2-year-old computer. We replaced our battery about 3 months ago, when it wouldn't keep a charge.

The problem occurs no matter how long it has been in use, and no matter how much battery power is left. It also happens when it is charging. It happens 30-40% of the time.

Any help would be appreciated.
