HP Pavilion G60 Notebook turns off unexpectedly

My HP Pavilion G60 Notebook PC turns off unexpectedly occasionally.  It appears to be a problem I can work around as from what I've observed, it only does this when it is fully charged and is still plugged in.  However, it's pretty annoying and I would love to find out if there is a solution!  It does not do this all the time but when it does, it just seems to click off, and then restarts after a few seconds and asks how I would like to start the computer.  Thanks for any input!

Re: HP Pavilion G60 Notebook turns off unexpectedly

How old is the laptop?  What surface is it on when this happens? Is the laptop hot when this happens?

    i've had the laptop for about a year and a half.  it is usually sitting on my desk or a desk-like surface when this happens.  it doesn't seem to be too hot when this happens as i can usually tell when the fan is in overdrive, but i can't say for sure.

    it actually did it again while i was writing that message for the first time and my computer wasn't even fully charged, though it was plugged in.

    Cats or Dogs in the house?  Sometimes it can be from overheating, check out this article:

    no cats or dogs around.  just me.  and i'm not even that hairy heh heh.  tried blowing the vents out and did get some stuff out, but it still turned off a couple times last night, still when it was plugged in.
