    Forgot to mention..
    I am currently putting a fan under my MBP, so it goes a little longer before turning off again--

    Take it in to an Apple Store or Authorized Repair Center.

    Update to 10.6.8 and run all applicable firmware updates and see if the issue persists.

    Instead of a proper cooling system with vents sizeable enough along with proper fans, Apples solution is to shut it down. Long after that happens my ThinkPad is still going strong, running fast, cool and quite. It's no heavier than my MBP, yet is just O.2" thicker. With vents on the sides & back, it takes heavy loads in stride. No excuses, no laboring, no shutting down. Just flat out great performance.
