I also encountered overheating and shutdown when using ffmpeg.
Turns out I had to blow out all of the dust accumulated inside the cooling
system on my HP 8440w with compressed air. After that the computer did no longer
shut down even though it revved up the fan to max.

Worth a check of your computer.
It should be able to run at 100% CPU for quite a while in normal surroundings
(if the air flow is not obstructed, please check the inlets on the underside of
the laptop).
