I just had the same problem.  After a certain number of reboots, the disks are 
automatically fsck'ed.  When this happened on my large (665 Gig) partition, 
fsck just hung at a certain, repeatable point.  I booted into single user 
mode and ran e2fsck manually allowed the fsck to complete.  Then normal 
booting continued.  I don't have power, power supply, random crashing, etc. 
or other problems.  Since I have this work around and it only takes a few 
minutes, its no big deal for me to do the manual e2fsck when needed.
