Are these programs being used by you or the laptop? By this, does it happen when your watching a movie and haven't touched the keyboard or mouse?
If so, it may just be your power settings (your power save mode may be active).
Right click on the desktop>left click properties>click screensaver>left click power. You can check your settings from there.

If its a complete "power off" then suspect that the laptop may have accumulated a lot of dust, blow out the fan exhaust port with a can of compressed air.
