IBM i Series Thinkpad constantly shuts down

    I have an IBM I series thinkpad but when I start it up, it comes on and
    after a few seconds, shuts down the power. I can not even turn the
    machine back on usually - power button is dead- but after a day or two,
    it does come back and this repeats.

    Obviosly a hardware problem but how to diagnose, and if too complicated
    - where is the best/cheapest way to deal with it (am in SF area if that
    matters)?

    Thanks!

    Are you starting with battery? If yes try to take out battery and start
    only with AC adapter.
