    Hi,
    As the title says I got a brand new (at the time) 15inch Macbook pro in late 2014. I haven't had any issues with the laptop at all until yesterday. It literally out of noewhere shuts off completely. I would be watching netflix/ have microsoft word open - anything and the screen would go blank and it will compeltely turn off. Once I turn it on, it won't show any "system didn't shut down properly..blah blah blah, crash report or something". It will boot-up normally as if I had shut it down myself before.

    Did anyone else experience this? What can cause this issue? I don't think its a software issue, but as I type this I am making a bootable USB and re-installing MAC OSX all over again from the scratch. I hope that fixes it but I still have a feeling its more of a hardware issue.

    The time-difference between when it restarts is totally random, at times it will restart in LESS than a minute, or at times it will be fine for an hour or two and then restart.....never seen anything like this

    If you OS replacement does not fix it, take it in and have them analyze the crash dump.
