If the latter, I would suspect either a power supply or a processor fan. If
the former, maybe you need to invest in an inexpensive UPS.
I do have a UPS, and it's fully charged. The system is just
spontaneously rebooting or shutting down.
My first guesses would be the system power supply or the CPU fan.

Yesterday I had a system shutting down on its own. It would power up
and stay on, but I discover that the PSU fans were not spinning. The
failing fans explained a warning message at POST indicating that the
system was overheating and needed immediate repairs.
