shutting off




I have a toshiba satellite laptop and within the past month it has shut off twice. I am just doing my own thing on internet and listening to music and it shuts off and the power light and the 4th one over, the system one? the one that flashes when stuff is happening, looks like a bowl?is also flashing, one then the other(sorry I am not all that tech savvy). And it sounds like the fan is trying to start?(reeooo reeooo noise?) It wont turn on, and I have to unplugg it. I wait ten minutes then plugg it back in and it turns on and everything is fine. Could this be to overheating? I am on the computer most of the day.

 I have done virus checks and such and doesn't seem infected. Any information can help,
