Check your power and temperature. Your PS might need a replacement. Check that all the fans are running and cooling sufficiently.
Also, have you installed and new HW/SW?
Are you running anything that might cause the shutdown?

Try to check the bios for "wake up on lan" that should properly be deactivated if you're having problems... thats my best offer mate
