I don't know what is causing your problems with shut downs, but often
these devices are thermally protected, so if they get too hot, they shut
down. Could it be the ventilation is blocked, or that it just is too hot
where you are scanning?
Or could you be having voltage fluctuations (like a large compressor
(air conditioner?? or other device)) clicking on or off??
