@jdowdle: Are you seeing anything in your logs? Check: /var/log/syslog for general issues with your system and /var/log/apache2/error.log for something specific to your webserver.
Is this a problem that started happening recently (as in the last few hours)? Because the same's been happening here.
I'm seeing a CPU usage of 25%, RAM usage of 50%, and a system load of 26.97... For reference, the rule of thumb says a system load of 1.0 should be max.
