E530 shuts down when sleeping - fan error?

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.
