My T500 shuts down suddenly at about 2 hour intervals.
I am not sure if it has to do with overheating, as when the laptop is turned back on, the temperatures are very low. I figure a hot laptop can't suddenly jump 50 plus degrees. I imagine a temperature drop would be gradual.
Also, when I have experienced overheating in the past, the laptop shut down wholly. Despite being plugged in, the light will go off and I need to do a battery reset. (take out battery, plug it and hold down power button while inserting the battery)
But this was as if I had shut it down. It still charges and turns back on without issue.
I checked the Event Viewer and have attached direct logs.
I am hoping it is a graphic's situation and I need to reinstall the driver.
If any more information is needed, please let me know. Also, it is not warm to the touch when it shuts off.
