Check Windows for any hung processes. Perhaps could be a memory issue with the server. Maybe a freak coincidence eg: blackout & UPS finally ran out of juice?
Fingers crossed for the blackout

It is not a freak accident.

It is not a hung process.

And it is a memory issue.

OK then, some ideas:
Do you have enough memory?
Check your server is fully patched and packed on the windows side.
Consider reinstalling Domino straight over the top (be sure to have a cold/ open file able backup)
What was the memory issue/ error/ info?
What is the server doing? (eg: are you running 50 rules on a very busy SMTP server)
Where did it get to on the restart?
