My best guess would be a loose battery. Take the battery out, make sure the compartment is clean, inspect the latch mechanism, check the terminals for corrosion or debris, and securely snap it back in place.

My Guess:
Sudden Motion Sensor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wouldn't be the battery if only clicking on the trackpad brings it back. It would have powered off and would require pressing the power button.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Sounds like it's going into sleep mode. Is there any chance that you were holding the Mac in such a way as to be pressing the Command, Option, and Eject keys at the same time? If so, that put the Mac to sleep.

Is it going to sleep and the screen coming back up or is the machine re-booting?

If it's re-booting, yep, I'd say some battery connection.
