MacBook Pro Random Shutdown

My MacBook Pro shuts off randomly. I'm running OSX. This happens whether the battery is plugged in or it's running on power.

"My MBP 3,1 is on logic board #3. When the first two began to fail I would get lots of random kernel panics. Not 'shutdowns' or 'shutoffs' but the lovely multi-lingual kernel panic screen.

If your laptop is just switching off: The only time this has happened to me is when the CPU/GPU are wayyy too hot as mentioned by Chris Johnsen.

Have you checked your logs in Console.app?"
