I don't have a ultimate solution, but my number one suspect would be the graphics driver.
When it's frozen, try ping-ing or ssh-ing into the machine from another on the network. If either is successful, that means the machine isn't frozen, just some part of the GUI, probably the graphics driver.
Also, if you ssh in successfully, try running "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart" to restart the GUI. EDIT: Judging by your other posts, you're running Xubuntu, I think the equivalent command there is "sudo /etc/init.d/xdm restart". It might not recover the machine, but it's worth a try. If restarting the GUI doesn't help, at least you should be able to shutdown gracefully with "sudo shutdown -h now" or reboot with "sudo shutdown -r now".
I hope my info helps diagnose the problem.

My mini-10 does this also in xubuntu.
I have to hard reset by holding the power button down for 8 seconds.
The first time this happened, it corrupted the filesystem in Linux Mint7
I had to reinstall Mint from scratch, then I removed mint and installed xbuntu.
My remedy: I don't suspend or hibernate, I just shut down xubuntu normally.
