I am not sure if any of you have encountered this issue before on a macbook 13.. I had OS X installed on it and it would keep shutting down after 10- 15 mins. I was able to power it on but it would repeat the same process.

However I gave up and installed WIN7 on the MacBook.... surprisingly so issues at all. I used it for 2 days on and off without powering it down. used it with and without battery no issues what so ever.

This has left me confused as I was thinking its the hardware thats on its way out, but clearly it isnt as far as I can think.

Any suggestion or advice will be apprecieated.
