I was watching a video of the Blue Devils Drum Corps and running LimeWire when my computer just randomly and suddendly shut off. No warning whatsoever. I hit the power button and nothing happened, so I switched off the PSU, switched it back on a couple seconds later, and it came on and started like usual. I haven't noticed anything different about it, but I'm kinda worried that one day, it might turn off and not come back on...

Any ideas on why this happened would be appreciated.

Try cleaning the inside of you computer. I had a cpu overheat from lent clogging the fan and the computer would randomly reboot. Make sure the power in unplugged.
