You say the 'power is cutting out' - I assume you mean the volume, because you say the lights are flashing when it happens. Because the lights are flashing, it is most likley not a power amp problem, but something in the DSP. It could be hardware or software. Have you tried a factory reset?

Mine does the same thing.
It is not a volume cutout, the amp is actually resetting. Often your settings will be lost too if they were not saved.
The only thing that makes sense from what others have posted, is that the Spider IV 75 (and possibly other models) may be sensitive to power line noise and/or transients. Try pluggin the amp in a different power socket, and at a different house or building and see if the trouble still occurs.

Thanks for the input guys. It was reset and calibrated not long ago. I have never lost my settings but did save the bundle last night just in case. After thinking about it, I can only recall the problem happening in my basement "studio". Interesting about the possibilty of a power issue. I'm gonna check that tonight. I have several computers running on the same circuit but have not noticed the problem with any of them, or other equipment. It has been played out much harder and never had the problem.... hmmm.
