What graphics do you have? Integrated or something else?

Your CPU may be at fault DC recommends a 3.0GHz dual core but WoW should run as your CPU is alot better than its minimum.

Most likely your computer shuts down due to overheating

That's what I was thinking. Specs seem fine, 8600m is good for a laptop. Make sure the fan underneath isn't blocked. Try blowing it out with an air compressor (canned air is ok but a 150psi air comp is way better).
download coretemp and do some measurements.

i do not think it is an over heating issue, i just cleaned out the fan yesterday and it runs MUCH cooler than before, and im always on a hard surface when i use my laptop, and the battery gives an inch to an inch 1/2 of space underneath, but the main output of the fan is located right above the battery and i make sure it too isnt blocked.

Can you use HWmonitor or similar to actually check the temps

As a side note, I would NOT recommend using 150psi even near a laptop unless you know exactly where all the points of stress will be when you apply such huge pressure over the pcb. Not to mention the unneeded thermal stress.

You are right. While my air comp is rated for 150, it's regulated to about 90. and I find that it's plenty to blow the most stubborn of dust from heatsinks. Probably 60 would be fine too. I just find that the PSI in the can is often too low.

Is that while playing a game or idle? That sounds like really good temps if it's under load, which I doubt. OCCT can both CPU and GPU stress tests, and display temps and failure warnings durning the test. Download that and see if it'll run for a while error free, watch your temps during the run.
