    I've got the same problem.
    Has it always happened since you had it?

    FTP into your box, navigate to /home/root/logs and upload the log here, you might need to add .txt to the file extension to allow you to upload into forum.

    Are you using an external hard drive? I had the same issue, daily/twice daily hangs/freezes, turned out that the external HDD was the cause of the freezing/hanging box. The system would need to be power cycled off/on to reset. I came to the conclusion the USB port isn't man enough to power an external HDD, so started using a USB memory stick and it's been fine ever since.
