If the machine runs longest when it hasn't been used in awhile, and the 
shutdowns occur more frequently/sooner after the 1st one, then I would also 
agree with overheating as a possible cause.

However, since the orig. poster said:

" I have to start it up again sometimes it will keep going, other times 
it will stop/turns off" 

that makes me think that if it stays on indefinitely after a restart -- 
when one of these shut-offs happens -- then it may not be a heat issue (or may 
be a sporadic fan malfunction).
