So now i have a black MacBook that seems to have some issues. It works fine most of the time but it occasionally shuts off by itself. It has never been anywhere near any liquid and has not been dropped. Any ideas as to what the issue is ? overheating? logic board going crazy?

Do the shutoffs occur only when on the battery, or also when plugged in to AC?
