    It sounds like it may be overheating. Download istatPro and see if the temperatures rise before it freezes or shuts down. You may also try opening it up and reapplying the thermal compound. This seems to help on MacBook Airs, so I would assume it would work the same on MBPs.

    You didn't really give us enough specific information to draw inferences. How old is it? Describe exactly what it does when it freezes and under what circumstances. Etc.
