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.
