Are you sure it's a full hard freeze?  I had the same symptoms, however
someone on the list suggested that I still SSH to the box from another
machine.  Did that, and the system was actually still running, it was
just the X session that was frozen.

Turned out to be an nVidia driver thing for me.  Proper driver
installed, all's well!

See if you can SSH into the box.
