Some times backup jobs just hang.

Recommendations:
Set up daily alerting by email or sms to notify of success and failure of backup jobs.
Configure your backup job to 'timeout' after a spcfic period of time eg. 12 hours. That way if it does hang the system will kill the job and keep going the next night.
Check your backup software logs every day.
