Macbook Pro
15-inch, Mid 2012
OS X El Capitan
Processor 2.3GHz Intel Core i7
Memory 16GB
Graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024 MB
240GB  SSD

Anyone know why this happens?  
How can I prevent this from happening?

I have tried PRAM and SMC resets in the past.
This has happened on multiple OSX versions: Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite and El Capitan.  I'm assuming this has to be more of a hardware failure than software.  In the time that I have owned this macbook I have replaced the memory and hard drive.  I hardly ever restart the machine.  I usually have 10 tasks open all the time.

After it happens I get a message that asks if I want to ignore the problem or send to Apple.  I send to Apple.
