I have a Toshiba Satellite M35X-S109,
I am trying to instal the Ubuntu, the installation starts but after a while the computer turns off automatically!

what is the problem?

I'm having the same problem and I can't tell if there is something going with the Power Management of the laptop. It seems to work fine from CD but as soon as it is fully installed it fails.
I was able to get all the way through and installation of Compiz-fusion, but as soon as I restarted the computer would automatically power itself off.
I'm still looking into it, as I'm trying to get away from Windows.


Even though is isn't directly Ubunutu related it does indicate what universally could be happening with the ACPI.

See this bug report (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/242400) for a likely solution. (In a nutshell: upgrade the laptop's BIOS)
