What kind of laptop? What operating system?  Does it just power down abruptly and completely, or hang?

It could be over heating, I recommend dusting it out for certain. It could be the power adapter, battery, or just about anything else.

 

To dust it out, use canned air or an air compressor and blow through the intake and exhaust ports (where the fan intakes and exhausts) be careful if you use an air compressor not to over speed the fan. Use a low psi such as 40psi or less.

 

Don't forget when using a laptop not to block the intake, on some models the air intake is on the bottom, using the computer on a bed or even your lap might block the air intake and cause it to over heat and shut down.
