Laptop Randomly Shuts off during Gameplay.
I don't think your really getting it. it IS NOT a heating problem, It doesn't just randomly overheat in the 10 seconds it takes to log on. So shut up about over heating and try to help me. Thank you.
You do realize that the CPU in your laptop -- in any computer -- can get hot enough to cause the system to shut itself off due to overheating in a matter of SECONDS from power-up.
You're turning on your computer, waiting for it to boot, loading up WoW.... that is an eternity of time within which your computer can overheat and shut off.
Listen to what everyone is telling you.
Power supply unit. replaced it and computer ran wow no problem for a few days. burned another one out. goanna get one that is made for my laptop. of my computer performs is apparently has a direct correlation to what power supply I am using. Will post again once I have completed a raid with my guild (the real test)

When i log into wow my laptop shuts off when i get in game at the same time, just a few seconds after getting in game, BUT ONLY ON MY DEATH KNIGHT. Every other Character i have loads and plays just fine. It only shuts down when i switch over to my Death Knight. it loads just fine but when it reaches the ingame screen on the Death KNight ONLLY it shuts down. Extremely strange.
crazy, I have the exact same problem, and I agree, its not an overheating problem, my system runs fine any other time, but as soon as I get in game, either fresh or if ive been logged on doing other thibngs, I sometimes last for 5 min, other times I can last for an hour before it shuts down. id REALLY like a viable explanation for this. as this is not the only thread that ive seen on this subject. theres actually quite a few people with this problem.
Actually there's truth in this. Your laptop may not feel hot but that's because the temperature may not have gotten to the outside world. Internally the GPU may have overheated for a split second before the self preservation hardware kicks in and shuts the machine down.
Try limiting your frames per second to 10 or something low and see if it will last longer before shutdown. At least on my laptop, it makes the machine run a lot cooler and longer on battery power (but I don't have these shutdown problems...)
