Could be a hardware problem... First, check if your system hangs totally or if it's only the X server: when it hangs again, try going to a console by pressing Ctrl + Alt + F1. If a text login screen shows up, it's only the X server that crashed. If this doesn't work, try pressing Num Lock. Does the keyboard LED switch on and off? If not, your kernel probably panicked. This is likely to be caused by either a bug or a hardware problem. Does it only happen when using programs that connect to the internet? In that case, it might be caused by bad support for your network card.
