Is there a reason why everytime i exit an app or my mail the htc logo shows up and my phone decides to reboot it self?

It doesn't reboot, it's reloading Sense, isn't it?

My Sensation does this ... and other's does it too, as I heard.
Rebooting the phone helps for a few days.

I hope for the next HTC update ...

Its when your phone had low RAM. Its pretty much rebooting.

Do this at least once a week:
Turn it off, take out the battery and put it back in.

Do you have a task killer running? This is a common culprit....in fact, sometimes killing other processes (not necessarily sense) can cause a sense restart.

To Lucas's point, the Android os will stop processes if you're running a lot of programs and run short on RAM.

On a semi-related subject, have you tried any of the 3rd party launchers (e.g. ADW launcher, Launcher Pro, etc)? Aside from making the sense restart issue moot, they have some nice customization features (e.g. resize widgets, increase the number of homescreens, increase number of rows/columns per home screen, etc)
