Your laptop shuts down automatically because of well-known overheating problems here is a couple of ways you can fix it.

Turn Off System Recovery

Right click on My Computer and choose Properties Click on the System Restore tab and check the box Turn off System Restore (This will increase Windows performance & save disk space)

WinXP Clear Page file on shutdown

Go to Control panel Administrative tools, local security policy then goto local policies ---> security options Then change the option for "Shutdown: Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile"
