I have an E530 that seems to shut down after I ignore it for 15 or 20 minutes. When I restart it, I get a brief "fan error" message. It tells me that it was shut down unexpectedly, etc. It always starts up just fine. the computer is not running hot. Somehow, I think this is not a real problem with the fan but something about the sleep process that is causing the fan to stop and then the computer shuts down.

Follow up - I set the timer and specifically watched the computer. It is set to go to sleep after 45 minutes. At 45 minutes the power light went out. When I restarted, I got the fan error.
