    My notebook computer has suddenly shut off three times today.

    This has never happened before, except during times of cpu intensive activities,
    such as video transcoding, where it has overheated.
    ...Then I bought a nice expensive cooling pad and it has never suddenly shut off since (until now).

    The notebook did not feel that hot after any of the three times it shut off today,
    and the cooling pad was turned on the last two times.

    How can I figure out what the problem is?
