    Do you mean that the screen switches off, or that the phone powers off?

    If the phone powers off, turn it back on again, then look at Settings/Battery. Tap the graph to get to the second graph. If you see a sharp drop to zero in there, the battery has to be replaced. (It's throwing a dendrite, if you want an explanation. If you want an explanation of dendrites in lithium batteries, see Lithium Battery Dendrite links.)

    Do you mean that it completely powers down, or that just the screen goes to sleep? Can you try a new battery?
