I recently got an Onkyo home theater package (receiver is Onkyo R320).
It's worked and sounded great).  Tonight, for the first time it just
shut off by itself.  I turn it right back on with no problem and it's
staying up.  I did not have the volume up real loud (just at normal TV
watching volume).  It does not appear to be over heating, and I'm sure
the speakers are not shorting.  Is this a freak incident or should I
have it checked while still under warranty?  Thanks

Always a frightening moment :(

It might be a dip/peak in the AC. Maybe your power company reports
something like this on it's website. I wouldn't hope for it though.

Are you sure the remote control wasn't stuck between the pillows of
the couch (or your leg)?

My first guess would have been the things that you already rulled out.
Are you absolutely positive that a a strand or two (sometimes hard to
see) on the speaker wire are not shorting?  Other than that I agree
with Gert of suspect a faulty power supply.

My whole apartment is on a single circuit breaker (old building).  This
proves to be annoying as every time the fridge kicks on or the microwave
gets used all the lights dim.  Do you think I this could have shut it down?
