It sounds like poor power - it could be the building power not being stable, the sub station not syncronizing to the main grid or an individual leg within the building not being properly wired.

Last year I had a similar problem at home and it turned out to be cheap wire, punched into punchdown type of duplex sockets. Heat and humidity variations caused the aluminum "pinch" connectors to expand and wires to loose contact. I didn't know until a socket arc'd that it was a internal wire issue - Las Vegas has always been notorius for dirty power.

Cheers,
