    Have you run hardware tests? Put in your OS X disk, reboot holding the D key. Make sure you have an hour or so to do the test.

    I've seen a few threads like this on the Apple Support pages. Some sent their notebook in to get parts fixed. Some said it was their battery, others said it was a logic board issue. Some had random shut downs because the notebook itself was overheating.

    Is your unit overheating?

    Regardless, you should contact Apple.
