Do you have X running or any additional cards/devices/drivers in use in
the machine when this occurs? Which ethernet are you using etc.

Does this still happen with ACPI disabled?

I have been running a ASUS A7N8X-VM (MTX version of your board) in my
home firewall for a couple of months. There are some occasional issues
with the USB causing lockups, eg. turning my USB printer off and on
again can sometimes cause a complete hang. Having ACPI enabled can also
cause interrupt related problems in some configurations.

Apart from the issues mentioned above I have had no problems with this
