How many hours has your phone been on? Mine usually shutdowns itself after 30+ hours.

I just reflashed PA 4.41 and running the kernel that came with PA. I believe it's the stock android one. Let's see how it goes.

When did you update to 4.4.4? I never experienced this on 4.4.2 either. Only started happening after I updated to 4.4.4. I think for me it happened the first night after updating.

The only thing I can tell you is, that 4.4.4 causes a lot of problems recently. You are by far not the only one with this problem. I've also experienced random shutdowns like yours, bootloops, devices not turning on again...
Especially stock 4.4.4 causes problems. I could not identify the problem or bugfixes by now. It is really complicated since some devices work fine with 4.4.4 and some dont.
I only can suggest you to flash a 4.4.3 rom. That is the only work around.

Default Same here.

I have had the same problem since i updated to 4.4.4... except mine shuts off only when i touch the screen (like pull the menu down, open a app, ect.) so, I went and did a factory reset, nothing changed. downloaded the Nexus Root Toolkit, did a flash stock to 4.4.4 again, nothing.. Then now I have tried another flash stock to 4.4.3 but now have manually updated to 4.4.4. I will reply again to see if this changes anything.

My Nexus 4 is completely stock, not rooted, never tampered. So I am very surprised with this issue, but I have had another issue.. Along with the shutting off issue I have a problem which so far was fixed with the first Flash stock(i think) I would use my Nexus 4 with signal for texting and using data but when i went to actually use data like to search something up it would randomly say i have "no service".. not sure why it did this, happened when I had 4 bars and didn't move..

Default Still not working

After I did the Flash Stock to 4.4.3 and then manually updated to 4.4.4, my nexus still doesnt work. Dont even bother trying it.
