One thing you may want to investigate is heat. Overheating will cause computers to shut down unexpectedly. Is there a certain task you are performing when this happens? How old is the laptop?

Do you mean how long does it take to power back on after it shuts down? I don't know. If it is a heat issue you may want to look at cleaning out the fans and investigate cooling solutions like these

When the laptop is running perform the following:

Click on Start
Click on Run
Type in eventvwr and press enter (that is not a typo by the way)

Look through the logs and see if you find any errors (marked with a red X) that coincide with the shutdown.

You could also download and install SpeedFan. This will monitor your system temperature.
