Evening all,

Specs:
Intel i7 7700HQ @ 2.8GHz, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, 16GB RAM, Windows 10.

When playing a game (it really doesnt matter which one, even if it isnt intensive) or rendering a video on DaVinci Resolve, my laptop can get about 15-20 minutes into the render, and will immediately shut down. No hibernation or shutdown process, it just immediately turns off.

Naturally, my first thought was overheating as it's a laptop, but my cores never go above 85 degrees and my GPU is sitting pretty at 65.

Sometimes it will shut down, and nearly every second time I go to render the exact same video, it will be fine and complete it without error.

Any help is appreciated.
