It's been designed to shutdown when it gets to hot because if it didn't, it would melt the CPU and start a fire.

The best thing you can do is find out why your laptop is overheating, various possibilities come to mind :


Are you accidentally blocking the ventilation slots ?  Perhaps having it on your knee, or on soft fabrics, cushions perhaps ?  If this is the case, then a hard tray surface would go a long way to solving the problem. You can also get special cooling surfaces to run them on.


Is the fan running and reasonably clean ? 


The Spyware Doc is absolutely right - they are designed to shut down if various components exceed their safe operating temperatures.
