Hardy Beta (with all latest updates) on my Compaq v3000 seems to have this problem. So you are not alone!
The laptop randomly freezes mostly resulting in a hard reboot. But recently i just switched off the wireless antenaa and after a few minutes it starts responding! I have been able to reproduce this behaviour atleast twice.

Driver Versions:
nvidia-glx-new: 169.12+
b43 with broadcom-wl- firware

dmesg after/before the freeze [ freezetime stamp around 356] :
