I think it is just tired. Let it sleep for a while.

Sorry I couldn't resist but on a serious note, take it into an Apple Store and let them have a look at it.

Oh and forgot to ask but how long before it goes to sleep. Because in system preferences there is a setting to automatically go to sleep after idle for a specified period.
