VMWare Guest OS randomly shuts down with no explanation...

We have a Windows Server 2003 Std edition server running Blackberry Enterprise Server 4.1.  It is running as a guest OS on a Windows Server 2003 Std. x64 running VMWare Server 1.0.5.  The guest OS is one of 1 of 8 total guest servers on this hardware.  It is also the only server that is experiencing the issue.  And here we go...  

The Blackberry server randomly powers off (shuts down).  I don't see anything in the event logs that explain why.  I can't find anything in the BES logs either.  I've checked the VMWare logs, but I don't claim to know enough to be able to discern anything intelligible.  

I can provide any logs, information, etc. necessary.  Please feel free to request additional information as I know it will be necessary to troubleshoot further.  Also, just a side note, no new updates were applied to the Host OS.  Any and all help is always appreciated!

Can you send\post your logs for this particular VM? They should be in the same folder where the VMDK files are located. All I need is a couple minutes before and after the time it powers off.

EFHC: I will take cre of that as soon as the problem manifests itself again.  I've done so much back and forth, I want to make certain that I can capture exactly what happens in the logs without having you guys and gals looking through 40 pages of text.  :-)  I will send them as soon as they are available!  Thank you for being the daring one!

My apologies for "abandoning" the question.  We are working with VMWare Technical Support to get the issue resolved.  

I have assigned a small number of points to EFHC for being the daring expert to even attempt to resolve the issue.  Thank you EFHC!!!!
