    Perform a backup of your PlayBook with the BlackBerry Desktop Software and reinstall de PlayBook OS via the Desktop Software.
    If it don't fix it, call support for RMA.

    I got exactly the same issue from a couple of months just after latest OS update. The shutdown is random and does not depend from battery level (I monitored that!). It is a software issue, not hardware. It happens also when the PB is in standby for long time, when I try to wake up it is turned off. I also reinstalled the OS after wipe but the issue is still there! I was waiting for other users to highlight the issue but it seems that not many are affected, this is the first relevant post. Anyone got an idea how to solve?

    I still having this annoying issue. I start to think that could be battery related, in the sense that battery drop (probably because it start to be defective!) and software respond with shutdown. I was also considering to replace the battery but its cost is quite considerable, I could buy a used PB. Anyone tried battery replacement ?

    Forget to add that any time that PB random shutdown, when switched on the wifi is always off. The bluetooth instead is as left.
