My Galaxy Nexus is suddenly restarting and I don't know why. How can I discover why this is happening?

is your nexus updated from 2.3 to 4.0? – Padma Kumar Jan 7 '12 at 9:07
@Padma: Galaxy Nexus ships with 4.0. – Al E. Jan 7 '12 at 15:06
@Luiz: Can you give more details? Is the phone overheating, perhaps? – Al E. Jan 7 '12 at 15:07
@AlEverett no it isn't overheating, It just simply restart. Sometimes it's idle and I'm not even using it and it restarts. – Luiz Guilherme Jan 9 '12 at 14:40

According to a few reports floating around the web, including this one from BGR this is a known software bug which Google is working to correct.

I get them on my GN occasionally as well and in my experience it's 100% random, so I don't think there's anything we can do to avoid them.
