I am not familiar with it, so I've downloaded it and started it, and 
will get ksar as well (so I can get a better handle on the output), and 
have a go.  On *Ubuntu it's part of a package called sysstat.  It does 
look quite interesting, not to mention comprehensive - the man page goes 
on forever,

This is my only machine, and it's a production machine, so I'm not sure 
about taking it out of service to run ctcs2 (thanks Rick!).  It may be 
worth a trial, nonetheless, in the wee hours of weekend morning.  As to 
the system event log, I just ran dmidecode, and it shows no errors.  
Mind you, this is 32 hours later, with a reboot in between, so anything 
that was current then may have been over-written.

I have lm-sensors installed.  The only thing I can access on this MB is 
one temperature setting.  Mind you, I've only relied on gkrellm to find 
them, though with other MBs it's been pretty good at sussing them out.  
I'll run the setup utility and see what I can find.  Voltage variability 
might be the culprit, I suppose.

I still wonder if it's a software issue with the various cron jobs that 
run at that time, and I'm still working through.

Anyway, thank you very much for these ideas - they're a considerable help.
