    MBP shuts off while playing video if battery is in computer. This occurs whether or not computer is plugged in or not.
    I took it to Apple twice, first time the Genius said I needed a new battery, done and no help. Second time Genius said I needed to replace the left I/O board, done and no help.

    Graphics board info as below:

    ATI Radeon X1600:

    Chipset Model: ATY,RadeonX1600

    There are many factors that could cause your computer to shut down, including Energy Saver settings, extreme temps, logic board problems, etc. Install iStat Pro to get accurate readings of temps, fan speeds, battery condition, etc.
