I would suspect a chipset driver at first. I'm not quite sure what chipset is on X41 tablet, you may take a look an choose from the list on the bottom of this page.

 

Hope this help!

There are many things that can cause a "software shutdown" problem...  I have seen OS patches, antivirus updates, and viruses cause this behavior...  When you hold down the power button for a few seconds, this causes your power supply to manually power off and is not recommended.  When you power down using this method your OS does not have a chance to perform needed shutdown operations like unmounting the drive partitions... This type of shutdown may cause data corruption...

 

The easiest way to diagnose and correct this type of problem is to use the system restore utility.  I would recommend using the last restore point before you started seeing this behavior.  After a successful restore, you may need to force a checkdisk on your primary partition...  This will require a reboot...

 

Hope this helps...

 

Best regards:
