I've already noticed that in my unit. Sometimes when I'm playing COD-MW2 the whole pc hangs. No problem with vga, temps, anything else. The solution is to shutdown in the button, and it drives me crazy!! Also wondered that it would be solved with a firmware update. I was just waiting. I'm going to apply this this week.
