I want to convey that "the laptop will start to shut down from now repeatly and continously "(for some reasons) but it never happened before .If you have not noticed the laptop shut down before and this is not what you want, you could say It has suddenly started to shut down.
For example, I found that there is a special virus in my laptop.And I know that it will cause my laptop to shut down frequently.I have those experience from my friendThere are many ways of saying this (including your original sentence).
But now I don't understand you. How do you know it will start to shut down repeatedly? Do you want this to happen?
"My laptop shuts itself down" and"My laptop is shutting itself down"A lot depends on how it shuts down.
Shutting down is what happens when you press the "shut down" button. The process is not instant. If it does it unexpectedly, you can say "My laptop shuts itself down."
If the screen goes black and the power to the laptop stops, the laptop crashes.
If a single program shuts down unexpectedly, you say "<name of program> crashes/keeps crashing. If this program causes your laptop to become unusable, you say "<name of program> crashes my computer."
If the computer stops responding to the mouse and keyboard, and the program will not close but the screen is still showing a program, then the laptop freezes.
No. "My laptop shuts itself down" means that it habitually shuts itself down. "My laptop is shutting itself down" means that it is in the process of shutting itself down at this moment."My laptop shuts itself down" and"My laptop is shutting itself down"
Are they same?
