Hi, and thanks for the answer Randy.

I have made some progress since my original post.  By manually booting
my system I found that it hangs with the last messages being something

[    3.658279] 620 pages shared
[    3.658342] 212995 pages non-shared

I did some searching looking at good boots in /var/log/dmesg and found
similar messages right before:

 [    3.658407] Out of memory: kill
process 395 (plymouthd) score 38 or a child

If I understand correctly, these are kernel messages and the number at
the beginning is the seconds from boot start.  With that said, it
appears that this is NOT a grub problem. I have posted on also and, one of the gurus on there seemed to
indicate that plymouth is a problematic piece of software so that is
what I am looking at now.

The interesting thing is that I do not get a dmesg file when the system
hangs.  The problem must occur before it is writes the log file.
