I had the exact same issue with one of my servers last year, I found out it
would just shut down anytime I did something CPU intensive (such as gzip a
200MB file). It turned out to be a bad fan on the CPU causing it to overheat
and shut down the system. Since then I've been monitoring my CPU fans via MBM
and MRTG. I would start there....
