Do you use FileVault?
Have you checked your disk with disk utility to see if it's dying?
The only thing that I think you could do would be test it with Scannerz to see if it's got a bad cable or connection in the system. That would show up as long irregularities and maybe an I/O error once in a while. A link to the product is here:
