It sounds like you have a program running in the background after 15 mins or so.
When you nect Boot up do a Ctrl.Alt Del and see what programs are running. After 30 ins do it again and take note of nay new additions.
This may help you track down the program that is causing the shutdown problem.
There is an article on the microsoft Knowledge Base about this problem. Only one I can remember though is for Win98 but that may help Article is Q238096

Try this if it works:

Run Regedit and open the keys up to:

HK_Current_User/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion

Add a key under CurrentVersion and call this key as Shutdown

With the key created, you create a DWord value and call it LogoffSetting and assign a decimal value of 3

You create another DWord value and call it ShutdownSetting and assign a decimal value of 3

Close the registry editor.

Shut down the Pc and re-start. The next time you shutdown, it should go off and not hang.

Caution: Careful with editing the registry!!!

Hope this helps
