Computer shuts down after starting web browser etc. in fresh Arch install.


I re-installed Arch last night as I noticed a while ago I was using 64bit and had been meaning to get around to switching to 32bit.

The install went fine, but when I install xorg and a window manager (I tried dwm and openbox), and start a web browser (I tried midori and luakit), my laptop shuts itself down as if it had overheated or something similar.

At first I thought my laptop was having trouble, but I'm currently booted into a manjaro livecd (I know), and can browse etc. with no issues.

Any ideas on what might be causing this, or what I can post here to help troubleshot?

Thanks.

Manjaro is fully fledged system that comes with power management already configured. It may be possible that on your installed Arch system power management is not configured properly. I would recommend top check the temperatures.
