    Ive just figured out why my s3 has been doing random restarts and turning itself off- there is a processor bug "sudden death syndrome" which i think an update has now fixed well i hope so, BUT my tab also does random restart or what appears to be with the samsung logo appearing on the screen as if booting up, i thought it might have been next launcher which id been using, but its still doing this after ive got rid of that.

    anyone know if this is happening to the tab?

    No random restarts here, only seen that on phones. In fact, I heard the Nexus 10 had phantom reboots which is one reason I chose this one over it. I did a logcat awhile back when two Android phones did that. It seems to be a kernel panic when 3G does a periodic PRL list upgrade. Switching to 2G only seemed to cure it. Do you have the 3G model of the Tab 2?

    still no idea ive got a feeling its when the ram gets full as it keeps everhthing open unless we close it from task man which is the same as the sds syndrome as for copy n paste ive not taken note if thats when its happened could be tho as i do it a lot.

    Mine was doing some sort of shutdown and turning itself off if on the charger for a long time (over a day) which was annoying when I'd go to use it to be greeted with the power off battery status. I just rooted and think it had something to do with that notification of "please unplug charger' which came from TouchWiz. Some energy star crap. We'll see if that fixes it. My random restarts seemed to be linked to power save mode.

    well one day later, CyanogenMod 10 and overnight and all day charging and it stayed on. must have been one of the later updates to Samsung's apps. hated my tablet deciding to shut off on its own. i prefer to make that decision myself thank you very much
