Hi Gene!

I think I would look into several things:

1. As Ed has suggested, check out the jobs in cron.

2. If the unit is not on a UPS, see if you can borrow one.  Power
problems can be time related.  For instance, if that is the time a
local farmer chooses to start his irrigation pumps it could cause a
voltage "sag" or spike which makes your computer freeze.

3.  Do a spy ware, virus, and root kit scan.

Good Hunting!
