My laptop is a Sony Vaio this is the model ->VPCF116FX.
Lately i've been gaming heavily on it, and its my first time leaving it on over night. Now the first thing you guys might think is that its an overheating problem, I can assure you its not as I tested it while monitoring my core's temperatures. 2 different tests, the one without a coolant the laptop peaked at a blistering 95c, like I said it shuts down randomly I can leave it on overnight without a coolant and then when I play for like 1 hour it can shut off. The fastest it shut off before was 3 minutes right after running the game I play. (It only shuts down while playing a game known as Aika) I doubt its also the games problem as how can a game shut off a laptop/pc. Anyways, the test with the coolant, the temperature is at a stable 65-68c, and it still randomly shuts off it could shutoff within 5 minutes, or 10 hours. (of playing a game, never witnessed it shutdown without playing yet)

I've just posted the same post about my Aspire 7736G. Keep checking it, because the fix for mine might be the fix for yours.
