every two weeks

Every two weeks my Freebsd 5.3 box goes down. 
I'm running a webserver, databaase. No mail. 
Unfortunately it's 1100 miles from where I am and is quite the pain for
my contact to go and start it up again. 
He says it's turned off and cold by the time he gets there.
It's an old box for sure, hardware seems the likely culprit, but why up
for two weeks and then down?
It's the 4th time in well, about 8 weeks. Before that it was off for a
long time because no one could get to it. It's in New Orleans.
Anyone run into anything similar? It seems so un freebsd.
What would be a good way to see what the last thing that happened was?
Thanks for any insight. Please respond to me personally (as well as to
the list if you like).
