hard drive activity will do it.  Normally on servers the background processes take priority over the desktop

Have a look in the Eventlog (Application, System) and determine if anything special is logged during the times that you have the issue. Agree with ve3ofa: it's a server that gives priority to background processes.

If the computer is frozen then how can it collect anything? You could collect performance monitor logs and after it happens go into the logs and then see what had happened. but the collection of the logs creates more server overhead and disk activity. All you can do is collect the information wait for the event in question to happen and then go back and investigate. Perfmon is a built in tool. Same with the event viewers that are also built in.
