Ok, well lately I've been trying to use my computer, and leave it on all night. However, for some strange reason it keeps shutting down. I think it might be because it's an 8 year old computer, and the fans are finally wearing down(They have never been replaced), either that or the mother board is getting too warm.

What do you all might think it is?

I've been having the same problem lately and I've done a couple easy things to temporarily fix the problem. First, I took a can of air to my computer and really cleaned it out. Also, I have a laptop, so I took the battery out (big help....keeps my computer much cooler). I try to run only one or two programs at a time now and I have my computer go to stand-by if I'm away from it for more than 15 minutes.

Perhaps some of those things will work for you? Good luck. I know how frustrating computers can be.

Hmm, perhaps you're right. My computer is a desktop, and it's an hp(one of the worst you can EVER get). I think though, that it might just be time to buy a new computer. This one has seen better days..

Dust could definitely be a major influence. Take a can of compressed air to it (make sure it's ok to use with electronics though).

Another thing to check if you're running Windows XP:
Go to the Control Panel and hit Power Options. In the Power Schemes tab, make sure that "System hibernates" is set to Never, or change the power scheme to Always On.

I checked the control panel, so I'll try compressed air tomorrow. Hopefully it'll work.
