The other night I was formatting a partition on a USB drive using 
Towards the end of the process the computer hung and my caps lock and 
scroll lock keyboards lights started flashing.

Rebooting fixed everything up, though there seemed to be an unusually 
high number of hard drive transactions replayed.
I then did the exact same command again and it all worked perfectly.

The logs show nothing unusual.

Does anyone have any ideas what may have caused this?

I'm not too worried as this is the first time it's happened and there's 
no damage caused.  I am a bit curious as to what it was though.
