Yeah, the power always seems to go out when I'm converting or encoding
video. Like you, there's no "resume" I have to start all over again when
the power comes back on.

Exactly. And, often "Save As" only applies to the final result.
So, you can't save your *settings* in case you need to restart.

An example of something software vendors *should* do but are oblivious
