    That it shuts down and restarts while your using it?

    OR

    Do you mean it switches on by itself when it's switched off?

    First culprit for that is normally power supply, meaning either your mains supply or your computer's PSU. But it can be just about anything in the computer.

    If possible borrow a UPS and see if that cures it - if it does buy one.

    Have a look in the MB bios - many now have voltage monitoring. Have a look for and voltages that are "hunting" or that are out of range. Look at the fan speeds, they should be constant.

    Before changing a PSU over check for any failed fans or blocked ventilation causing overheating. Check your drivers are up to date and there are no viruses etc on your system. If none of those finds a problem, try changing the PSU.

    If you cant change the PSU easily try swapping any components that you can to see if it helps.

    If you know what you are doing try bumping up the memory and cpu voltages just a notch - be careful there though. Theres no going back if you get it wrong and no warranties to fall back on.
