The previous system shutdown at 3:26:40 AM on 4/16/2004 was unexpected.

What were the events (even informational ones) right before the unexpected shutdown. Have you tried adding a UPS to the server? Have there been any power outages in your area - ie nighttime road construction etc. (try hooking up a digital clock nearby and see if it is blinking the next day)

Is anything schedule to run on the server at or around that time?

That got me thinking about the Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie sketch on the "Internet Helpdesk."

Where they refer to dumb users as 12:00 flashers, because all appliances in their home are always flashing 12.

When I used to work on an internet helpdesk (starts convulsing and foaming at the mouth then quickly composes one self) I either saw or did 2/3rds of what was on that video. Never saw someone take a swig of alcohol although people had come in drunk before.
