Diablo® III

Computer shutting off on its own.

Ever since this new patch came, I get about 10-20min of game play and my computer just shuts off. Never did this until this patch was downloaded, what the hell could cause this??

You may want to use some compressed air and try cleaning the dust out of your computer see if that helps first. It may just be overheating.

This started happening to me last night as well - in the middle of an uber run and after the lag had been so damn bad with this game.

I freaked out thinking my graphics card had died then rebooted (lost my key and the run), only to have a stable system and then today in the middle of a laggy fight it did it again.

I wasnt sure until I saw this thread that others are having issues too - and its odd, just all of the sudden a black screen and shutdown.

Blizzard really screwed up on this one.

My gateway PC keeps shutting off while playing Diablo 3, I will be right the middle of a crowd of demons blasting away when the power goes off.

no warning , no blue screen of death, just off like a light switch. It only happens when I am playing D3
I can leave PC on for several days and it never powers off. This has been going on for about 2 weeks Just after the patch update.

Could it be the new patch ???

Has to be. My laptop has never had power issues and certainely never shut off like that before until lately and only playing d3 while laggy and fighting tons of mobs or doing ubers (esp ubers).
