  • @AlEverett no it isn't overheating, It just simply restart. Sometimes it's idle and I'm not even using it and it restarts. Jan 9, 2012 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.
