System hangs after a while

I noticed lately that my system just freezes and becomes unresponsive
after several hours. It doesn't matter whether I'm in X or if i'm simply
in the console, but after a while the screen goes blank, and my input
devices such as keyboard and mouse simply don't work.
After a restart, the keyboard and mouse still don't work and I'm stuck
at the bootloader. Therefore, I turn the system off, unplug both mouse
and keyboard and turn it back on. It works just fine... until the
initial problem starts over again.
What could be the source of this? I am running FreeBSD 5.1 and I'm
running an edited kernel simply to add sound support.
