Default Laptop shuts down

My crappy laptop I have at my dads house keeps shutting down mid diablo 2. It's reaching about 70 degrees celcius and its a p4 2.4 ghz, is there anything I can do to try and stop this crashing?

is 70c the cpu core temp? bc ATX motherboards are made to shutdown when the cpu overheats.

with a laptop? hmm the only think i can think of is keeping it on a flat hard surface, not your lap. maybe something that will conduct some of the heat like a sheet of metal and rotate it around when it gets warm. i suppose if ur really desperate you could keep an ice pack underneath the metal sheet or a towel? anything else i can think of involves $.
