hi,

this may be a power saving settings issue.

make sure that you have not set your computer to switch off after a predefined time.

check the settings.

or it may be an overheating problem.

make sure that the heatsink is correctly positioned on the processor.

I am guessing that you are new to linux and might appreciate a few other links

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Links?action=show&redirect=Signpost%2FQuestions#help
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwitchingToUbuntu/FromWindows
http://www.linuxquestions.org

You may have been using Windows for many years and everyone around probably has too so don't expect to just suddenly magically understand linux overnight. It takes time but is really quite easy once you get used to asking for help in the right places ;)

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)
