Is the server connected to the internet?
If so, is it accessable from the internet, e.g. via FTP, HTTP, SMTP or whatever?

ask the cleaner .......

start with the even veiwer and find out when the server goes down.
then rack your brain and try and think what processes do you have running over night

could it be backup software or maybe something updating?
a batch script to transfer files?
or have you set up a batchscript to kill all computers on the domain and you happen to have not excluded your server? ive seen this happen once.
and look at the power options

there is so many things it could be but best find out the time to narrow the slection

Thank you for your advice. It turns out that it was too hot. We put a fan in the server room and it didn't turn off last night!

Having to use a fan indicates you have a serious environmental conditions issue.
Where the server is should not be heated
Understand that overheating will destroy the server hardware resulting in catastrophic data loss.
Overheating can literally scramble your data
