What do all the logs say in the minutes leading up to the hang? Can you leave top or Activity Monitor running on it so that when it hangs up it will probably show the machine's status? Have you considered running sar to record the machine's usage?

I'm having the same issue on a 10.4.11. Server hangs, moving mouse wakes the screen but nothing can be clicked as the "colored spinning wheel" stays there. All users lose the whole services provided. We cannot log in using SSH and we are force to reboot "by hand".
This issue started with no cause to me as the server has not been "modified" since a long time...
What's "SAR" you're telling to use ?
