Was it shutting down alot before you installed the new software?

no... its not about any new software...
its generally shutting down on its own... the timings are erratic... sometimes it takes 45 mins.. then 30.. comes doen 5 mins too after a lot of usage...
I did not install the OS .. it came with the laptop....

Mucks is right, if it is only a week old it is covered in warranty. It is better you take it to the dealer rather than trying to fix it, in some cases you could void the warranty as well. Which make and model it is? Nowadays every manufactuerer makes a centrino notebook so tell us what brand and model no

Hi Mumbaigeek,

I am only a fellow notebook user, so hope no one will mind if I just add a thought, but have you checked the settings in your "Power Options?" (Click Start > Control Panel > Power Options) perhaps your Power Schemes have been set to close down after brief periods of use? Even when running on mains power, there are options to turn off the hard disks after only 3 mins, or to put the system into "standby" or "hibernation" after just 1 minute, so might just be worth a look. Good luck. :)
