I expect it's heat-related, too.
Does an XL have a button-driven LCD display panel like an L does? Does it
say inything interesting about the failure, or about the system events?
Is the thing generally running hot? Commanding "/usr/etc/sysctlrd -p" will
tell you some things about heat in the machine.
Anything in the logs?
