Check out this thread: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?29377-G73SW-Shutting-Down-for-no-reason&country=&status=. It may need to cool down before you can start it again.

It's testing you, trying to find your breaking point...

Seriously, the thermal paste that allows heat transfer from the processors to the heatsinks drys out and becomes less effective over time, leading to overheating. Take a look at http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?946-G73JH-GPU-Overheating-Observations-and-Suggestions-(Rea....

You may be able to reduce temperatures by blowing out your fan intakes and exhausts with compressed gas. If not, you're probably looking at a repaste.

A good cleaning may be all you need. Cooling pads are ineffective for G Series laptops since the laptop fan intakes are not on the bottom.

If cleaning fails to significantly lower temperatures to prevent overheating shutdowns, then a repaste is the only effective solution short of gaming in a walk-in freezer...
