The stepper power supply may have a thermal shutdown circuit for safety. Are you operating anywhere near its rated current capacity?
If it fails again, try to directly measure the PS output voltage (between the power supply and the stepper driver boards) and see if it is stable. If so, see if the outputs of the stepper drivers are showing pulses (drivers could also have thermal shutdowns, but it is unlikely that all three would trip at once)
