I have a iMac 5k late 2014. I don't play a lot of games on it but when I do it sometimes goes to sleep while I am playing. It seems to do it more when I first launch the game or if I switch away with Mission Control and then switch back. Is anyone else having this issue?

Is the iMac over-heating? If the Mac is basically shutting down, its for a reason, over heating, hardware malfunction etc I'd say that behavior is not normal and you should perhaps run the Apple Hardware Test to see if anything kicks out in the test

Thanks, I'll try that.

I ran Apple Hardware Test and it said everything is good. Must be something else?
