Whenever i play pc mini games ( the ones i've downloaded from yahoo ), my pc just automatically shuts down for some reason during random intervals. Sometimes after 30 mins, sometimes after 10 mins.
Now I checked with my Power Options and my laptop is set to HOME/OFFICE as its power scheme. I also chose to NEVER turn of hard disk or do system standby or system hybernate.
Also, my laptop is plugged in the whole time to a secure power source when i play these games. and it also happens when im watching a movie.
this doesnt happen when im surfing the net or typing or browsing photos etc... I've used this laptop for hours while I was in the office and not once did it shut down just like that.
Only when im playing mini games and sometimes when i watch movies. Oh well...
