Check for a main vacuum leak. Do you feel a loss of power at idle? The A/C and defrost (which uses the A/C) require power from the engine. If it can handle the accessories (A/C, Defrost) it will shut off. Also the power steering strains the engine, does it shut off when you turn the wheel all the way? If so check for a vacuum leak. If the engine is idling rough, get it fixed.
