Could be a number of different problems. One of the more common with laptops is power management.

You could always try entering the following from the grub command prompt (while booting):
Code:
acpi=off apm=off
And see the problem goes away. At least you may be able to identify what is or isn't causing it.

Might be worth checking your syslog?
