  It's really strange that an user process, like CD burner and audio encoder,
could turn Your machine off.
  I'm suspecting a hardware problem: For example, is Your CPU cooler OK ?
Are You able to read the CPU temp during operation (lm_sensors etc.) ? Maybe
that ogg encoding is so CPU intensive that Your CPU overheats and the
motherboard shuts the system down automatically ?
