T410 Shuts down unexpectedly


My brand new T410 has shut down twice unexpectedly with no warning whatsoever--there was no blue screen error at all. I haven't been able to find many other posts about the T410 having these problems--I have seen many posts about the T400 doing this--so I'm going to document my efforts at fixing this here in the hopes that it will help others.

Some background on my system: I purchased my T410 about a month ago.  


   Intel Core i5-520m processor

   4 GB of RAM

   Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 5700MHD

   250 gb 5400 rpm hard drive

   9 cell battery

   ThinkPad bgn Wireless



    As soon as I got the computer I uninstalled the Windows 7 base, and installed my own copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. I then installed all drivers through Windows Update.


Context of when the problem occurred:  

  Both times I had been surfing the net for a few hours, not doing anything that would tax my system. I was connected to the internet wirelessly, was using the battery to power the system, but I had plenty of power left.
