My pro spontaneously quits

I have a 2006 MacBook Pro with an Intel Core Duo, which I upgraded with additional memory and storage and SnowLeopard. It's been great for 18 months or so but now it occasionally spontaneously force quits, usually when I'm doing something that takes a little bit of extra horse power. Like tonight I'm merging iPhoto libraries. Does this mean I'm going to lose it all soon? I back up to an external often but I was hoping to keep this machine a little longer. What is likely going on and what should I expect and do?
