At its age, it's most likely overheating. If it were mine, I'd do major surgery and clean it down to the heat sinks. The heat sink vents are probably clogged. I'd also replace the thermal paste and blow out the fans. Go here and select your Book: PowerBook G4 Aluminum

Then click on the heat sink guide, here's one: PowerBook G4 Aluminum 15" 1-1.5 GHz Heat Sink Replacement
