How long is your final show turning out to be?
Depending on the length of show along with your specs on your computer will sometimes determine the time it takes to render. Be patient and walk away is what I do making sure nothing else is running at that time including any screensavers etc...
I am by no means an expert but you mentioned that you hit ctrl,alt,del you may want to stop and start over on the rendering as I am not sure if the program will continue on without problems. I hope and pray you saved your work before rendering???
Let us know.
