Default Tab S 10.5 shut down

Moments ago my Tab S shut down after trying to exit a game. Suddenly the game froze, screen went dark for a minute while the capacitive buttons stayed lit and gave feedback. Then it was dead. Kept pressing the power button but it would not turn on. After doing some searching I tried pressing the power button while pressing volume up and fortunately it turned on again. I did notice the back was a bit warm but not HOT. Anyone have a clue as to what may have happened?

Funnily enough the exact same thing happened on my s5 when trying to exit from an app. Only happened once, but could never figure out why.

I had my original tab freeze on me several times. Got a replacement from John Lewis'. No problems with new one. See if u can get yours exchanged. It might be a batch issue

Thanks guys. I couldn't replicate the issue, even after opening up a few games and leaving them all open at the same time. I should be ok.
