It seems to happen when I'm using Pandora. But then again, I'm always using Pandora. It also reboots so quickly that sometimes, I do not notice.

Is there a way to see what caused the last reboot?

(Just thought I'd add.) My milestone reboots randomly about thrice a week. I've noticed it can happen at any moment with any app (sometimes even while it's sleeping). And the reboot is almost instant: it doesn't shut down smoothly, it simply blacks out and immediately starts booting again. – Malabarba Feb 16 '11 at 16:18

Engadget has just reported that the Nexus S is having issues with random reboots ( and apparently fixes are coming.

To see the log you can get the following app:

Thanks. However, I'd still like to know what were the causes of the last reboots. Is there not a log of this? – Belmin Fernandez Feb 16 '11 at 2:40
@Nimmy You can make your own log, google "android logcat" – Matthew Read Feb 16 '11 at 3:50
