    1. Go to a homescreen where you have room for an icon.
    2. Click the arrow on the bottom right to bring up the 'add to homescreen' menu
    3. Choose 'Shortcut'
    4. Choose 'Settings'
    5. Choose 'Car Dock'. (I know I never knew this existed either.)

    Once the icon appears on the screen, click it and un-check 'Auto Launch'.

    Failing that, read this forum post

    mine just started doing this as well but only when I am charging it with an old Motorola charger I use sometimes with a micro usb adapter.
    Had a look at that thread above guess it is the cheap adapter I am using
