Default WoW, computer shuts down

Hello,
I havn't been able to find out about this anywhere else, so I thought I would try here.
Whenever I play World of Warcraft, I can only play for like 10-15mins, then the screen goes black for like one second, then the computer just shuts off straight away. I can play other games like Battlefield 2 for hours on end with no problems. I don't overclock or anything, my computer easily meets the specs of the game, and I don't think the problem is overheating. Has anyone got any ideas?
Thanks,
~Nick.

Thanks for the reply.
Ok I did that, but there doesn't seem to be any entries about WoW at all, or the computer shutting down.

Hey. I have CPUCool, but my temps when I turn the computer back on are only like 65 degrees celsius.
Lol yeah the sig was actually an attempt to list my real computer specs, but I couldn't be bothered finding all the details and stuff.
EDIT: Grats MFrostButter, 100 posts.

Ok so it just happened then when I was playing. When I rebooted, cpu cool has the following temps:
Temp1 = 30.0C
Temp2 = 56.0C
Temp3 = 37.5C
Temp Sens 0 = 35.0C
Temp Sens 1 = 72.0C

However, as the comp was restarting, I went to the H/W monitor I think it's called in the Bios, and it had a temperature there of 78 degrees C. I think my computer is set to shut down when the CPU reaches 80C. Is that normal for a 2.6g Celeron D?
Or would the 78C be my graphics card? It's an AGP NVidia GeForce 6600gt, 256mb.
