I have a compaq presario 1508AP laptop. In several occasions the power, whether battery pack or AC source, will turn off by itself. When I turn it on via the power switch power is restored.

Any ideas what's causing this?

Have a look in Control Panel - Power Options and see if your computer is set to go into standby or hibernate after a period of time. Also check that the cooling air isn't obstructed causing overheating.
