The whole computer switching off sounds like a hardware problem. A couple of things to check:

  1. Are your fans spinning? Are the heatsinks and vents clear of dust? Computers will shut themselves off to prevent heat damage.
  2. Is this a custom built PC? Is the CPU heatsink seated properly with proper thermal paste application? What temperature does your CPU report?
  3. Does your power supply have a high enough wattage rating?

Do you play any other games or do any other intense processing? It may be that your computer's temperature or power usage is fine under normal loads (Windows, web browsing, etc) but X-Plane stresses the system enough to expose those issues.

X-plane is enhancing yes, that is valid, however to the extent my experience says, FSX is still better with regards to the authenticity which incorporates the flight flow for the planes, and FSX have considerably more extensive "market" to download third part addons. As a matter of fact, FSX isn't dead, and just as I would see it, you should remain with it. Dissertation Help in UK
