Why does my Gateway laptop shut down while watching netflix?

My Gateway laptop, with Windows 7, IE 8 and Google Chrome, shuts down after several minutes watching Netflix. It sits on cooling fan pad and has additional house fan blowing on it. It doesn't shut down while surfing. What to do?

    It`s the settings if you aren`t touching the keys every few seconds as you would in say when surfing.It shuts down after 5 mins. Just change the battery/power settings.

    Sounds like a power saving preference. Change the power saving preferences from "shut down after x minutes" to "sleep after x minutes" or even just turn the power saving mode off.

    Hope it helps.
