My E530 laptop will just randomly and without warning shut off. I can be typing or browsing or doing nothing, and the screen goes black. It acts like it has gone to sleep, because the little red light is still on, but slowly pulsing. After hitting the ESC key a few times, the log in screen will come back on, and when I log in, it always takes me back to exactly where I was when it shut down. Same point on a web page, same exact spot where I was typing on a document, etc. It seems to be possibly affected by the angle/position of the screen, but that is not consistent - never the same position twice. Help. I have to use this laptop in my teaching, and it is extremely frustrating for it to keep doing this during a lesson.
