My system, which runs 24 hours a day, also crashed at around, I
suspect, midnight. I run Testing/Lenny and this machine has been stable
for a number of years.
The latest entry in any of the logs is in syslog:
Dec 31 23:57:58 dataman1 -- MARK --
There is nothing after that and there is, apparently, nothing untoward
in the logs.
This morning the machine was totally unresponsive to mouse and
keyboard. Trying to connect via ssh failed - no route to host and the
magic sysrq keys had no effect.
The timing does seem to be significant.
