welcome to TSG, danesh

by "boot up out of the blue..."
do you mean it turns on when it was off, or restarts?

if the first - look in the setup program of your BIOS for something to disable like "Wake on Ring" or "Wake on LAN"

if the second, try running it with the case off, to see if it's heat related
