Laptop shutdown during update

I am using OpenSUSE 12.1 with windows 7, in separate partition. When I try to update the version using “zypper” my laptop runs very fast and shutdown in between.
What may be the reason? Normally processor fan runs faster on Linux as compared to windows.
I am using Thinkpad, i5. 2,67 with 4GB RAM.


These are the SUSE forums for the enterprise product, you need to ask
in the openSUSE forum (same username login will work) at
