Hulu Causing Computer Lock-Up & Restart

My computer auto restarts or locks-up only when I'm watching Hulu on full screen. I was watching Hulu and paused it for maybe 5 to 10 min while I finished up a couple of things, I starting playing the video and about maybe 10 min later my PC just shut down & restarted, there was no BSOD it just restarted on its own. I dl CPUID to check my temps to see if it was maybe o'heating while i watched other videos on hulu but nothing, it worked like a champ & temps were around 35c I think. Does any one have any suggestions on what would cause my auto restart while watching Hulu.
