Event log error 6008 on Misys server - "The previous system shutdown at 9:38:16PM on 2/20/2009 was unexpected.

We have a Misys server that reboots itself between 9:35 and 9:45 nightly.  There is a scheduled task set for Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 5am.  We have checked Dell OpenManage for any hardware issues.  We have checked the APC Powerchute software and APC 1500 the server is plugged into.  We have a backup of Misys running that starts at 6:30pm and typically takes 2hrs.45mins. to complete.  The restart seems to always happen about 20-30 mins. after backup completion.  We have also checked MS auto updates for any updates that could not be applied possibly causing a reboot.  Any input/ideas appreciated!
