It Sure Sounds Like....

The thermal switch is tripping. If this is the case, then after they go out for several minutes, they should come on again for a couple of minutes before going out again.
Take the light out of the fixture (switch off) look up inside the fixture. There should be a label saying what the fixture is rated for. (60 watts max, 75 watts max, etc.) Make sure the bulbs are no larger than this rating.
Also, if you are using standard incandesent(sp?)bulbs, changing them to a flood reflector type bulb will help.
Good Luck!
