Sounds like a faulty PSU mate, could be the thermal fuse kicking in, try a different PSU

PSU= power supply unit. Probably he means the power pack that you connect to your laptop.
It could also be some settings in the control panel that deal with power consumption (it could be set to go off at a certain time...)
Also check the fan and make sure it is spinning and free of dirt and debris. A stuck or clogged fan could cause the computer to overheat eventually thus kicking in an override that could force the laptop to power down.

Old and Cranky
Also the AC Adapter could be overheating and causing it. After the shutdown, will it come back on using battery power only?

He has said it comes back on with the bat power and when it does come back on the pc says there is no mains power (although he has it switched on) untill he unplugs the power pack and plugs it back in again, this sugests to me that the the power pack is over heating and cutting out and only when he unplugs it does it reset.
