Turn off your caps. You don't need to yell.

Power going off/on is probably a loose connection. It could be anywhere from the breaker to a junction box somewhere on the circuit.
If there are more than one circuit going out it could be the POCO's problem in the wires or meterbase coing to your house.

When the power goes out, does it go out to both lighting and receptacles? Just lighting? Just receptacles? Which room is it?

Then I agree with Joe. Start looking for the bad connection. It's a lot of work. Search this forum for the word "backstab" for additional information.
