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.
