Zillow Tier I Windows Technician Interview Question

I interviewed in Seattle, WA and was asked:
"There is a backup server in an office, which is scheduled to run an incremental backup every night at 7:00, then copy the results of that backup to a network share. Job completes fine every night except Thursday, when it fails, and the machine is found hung the next day. What's happening?"

Maintenance cleans the windows of the office on that day, and leaves the curtain open after doing so. Late-afternoon sun hits the machine, machine overheats during the job. Question (which I did not successfully answer, and may be butchering) was asked more to see process of trouble-shooting (though it would have been nice to have found the answer). It was also taken from an actual situation the interviewer had encountered.
