Only thing I've attributed to my reboots was when I had GPS on for an extended period of time (e.g. after using NAV). Other than that, I still haven't been able to determine "exact" cause. I guess, because I experienced random reboots on the EVO and it hasn't been as often on the Photon, I figured it was just one of the quirks.

check your applications. some of them are not made very well and will sometimes cause corruption. clear cache and data from apps. clear cache from system. take into a sprint store and ask them to order a new battery for you. use you built in task manager to keep apps shut down. make sure you have the latest software installed and if by chance it has gotten wet that will cause powercycle.
