Traction Control (Incident)!

While I was driving to work this afternoon, I had quite an incident.

I had my traction control off, but the stability system was still active.

when I entered the round about and as I was about to exit, I accelerated the car, like I would normally do, but it span, it went around 280 degrees!

I tried to steer in the direction of skid but there was no hope to bring the car back, so I slammed on the brakes and the ABS kicked it, eventually stopping the car.

Why didn't the stability system kick in? Moreover, after the car came to a complete stop, the engine was off. Why would the engine cuts off? Is that a safety feature? Don't I need the engine to remain ON so that the Stabilitrack will work?
