I just have to tell everyone this. Every now and then, wether i'm actively using my Laptop or not, it will randomly shut down. for instince i'll leave my computer on over night leaving it to finish pulling off a movie or three off of limewire. when i go to my laptop the next morning it is simply off for no reason at all. but today was quite annoying because i was watching Star Wars: a new hope and as darth vader says "abd now we will dicuss the location of the secret rebel base." and that probe thing come in it, again shut off. im not shure what the problem is if its just that my computer sucks or that i have some virus or what but i just had to tell you guys.
