Having problems with your HP PC Laptops ?

Bought a HP Pavilion 17'' P8600 6GB 500GB nVIDIA GIGABIT LAPTOP. When I start it up after a few minutes it shuts down. this is when power lead is plugged in and also when it is unplugged. Does this model have a built in feature where as if you slightly move laptop it shuts down? Or if you touch the lid it thinks you want to shut down? It is running Vista Home Premium.
