Ha ha, very special dust, affecting Windows 7 only, not windows XP... *LOL*
Sorry, it is a little hard to take an answer like that seriously...

My T530 that I received one month ago has just started showing the same problem. At first the system shuts down at about 60% battery level. If I have an opened document, my computer even asks me if I want to save it, but then shuts down before I am able to respond...
Now it even shuts down randomly when it is plugged in...
And I found the build quality is much worse than my previous IBM Thinkpad T42. The screen latch is not able to hold the base and the screen firmly together, the battery wobbles too much, so does the corners of the keyboard base. The materials on the screen frame, and at the base near the screen hinge yields under slight pressure... **bleep**

do not download or install anything.
I had the same problem in T410 and widows 7
I just went to control panel --> power option and in plan setting--> advanced setting --> Processor power option --> I change the Maximum power state to 60%
Its now better than when it was new.

Your solution about "Processor power option " was correct!!!
My T410s was giving me a major pain shutting down up to several times a day, and I always have a lot of files open.
Thank you for sharing, it's been several days already since I applied your suggested fix and it stopped doing that.

- Power Options.
- Create a new Power Plan.
- Choose "Power Saver" as start point.
- Change Advance Power Settings.
- In Processor Power Management, choose 5% as minimum and 80% as max., under battery and pluged in.
- For System Cooling Policy choose Active.
I do a lot of video rendering and 3D rendering with laptops, and use this solution for years with several brands and builts. The processor speed limited to 80% is most effective than 100% most of the times. You can try to use values between 70 and 90.

I have this exact problem with my T410s. The solution I found may be unique to my laptop but after lots of experimenting I noticed that the laptop never shutdown unless the battery was in the machine. I can only use it if the battery is out and the power cord in. I can't even be charging the battery.
hope this helps someoone
