79° C for an i5-8250U is nowhere near to overheating. http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5%20i5-8250U.html
You already have the spec sheet from Intel telling you that, too. It's light years away from "too hot" when maximum operating temperature is 100° C.
If this machine is repeatedly exhibiting this behavior, is as new as you say it is, and Acer's own repair person cannot detect the cause then it's "a lemon" and should be returned, promptly, for exchange or refund.
If it happened once, and has not happened again and you've been doing pretty much the same things on it since, I'd chalk it up to a fluke that you'll never know the cause of.

Thanks a lot britechguy for your reply.
The automatic shutdown has happened just once, so as you said it might be just a fluke.
Asking my earlier question again just for precaution:-
Is there any application which can save monitoring data to a file in case the temperature goes beyond a specified limit? (Just like how Windows Event Viewer saves a log in case of an unexpected shutdown). The Core Temp application does give a pop-up notification if the temperature goes beyond the specified limit but no history is maintained of these notifications and cannot be retrieved according to this link: https://superuser.com/questions/947947/view-past-notifications-in-windows-10
