Shutdown while watching a movie unexplaned shutdown

I looked up the error code for the time of shutdown and it gave me:6009 Microsoft ® Windows ® %1 %2 %3 %4.
So I went to:http://www.microsoft.com/technet/support/ee/transform.aspx?ProdName=Windows+Operating+System&ProdVer=5.2&EvtID=6009&EvtSrc=EventLog&LCID=1033.
It says I pressed shutdown, but I did not have the keyboard or mouse near me.
This happened once a few months ago, but the computer has been running great otherwise. I have watched many DVDs  between the first and second time.

Also looking for Return To The Planet Of Prehistoric Women. When I play that it will no doubt give me more solid error codes.
ps I played Voyage again straight through with no probs

seriously it`s an unexplained error or IT. Sometimes things just happen. I wouldn`t spend money where it`s not needed.
If it happened every day I would look into it. If it happened once then never again just think of it as a mystery of computers.
It is however most likely caused by a heat issue that the machine just stopped.
(Sometimes when I shut down my machine I can`t boot it anymore, I have to short the CMOS to get it to start again...for what reason I do not know, but that`s the fix to my problem.)
