Random Reboots?

    I have been pretty happy with my first week ownership of the GT7+. But the last couple of days, I have been experiencing some random reboots. The tab will be just sitting idle and suddenly the music theme will play and the samsung logo will pop up. Mostly it is annoying. Sometimes I notice that the battery usage will reset back to 0 minutes (even though it may have been off the charger for hours). I googled and found that it is pretty common problem. I have uninstalled some of my most recent updates/apps, but it does not seem to help.

    Anybody else have this random reboot problem or a solution? (I have the Canadian version, wifi, no IR, 16 GB)

    I have tried unloading and reloading various apps to see if I can find the cause of the random reboots. This did not make a difference.

    I now believe that my random reboot problem maybe caused by the wifi sleep policy. When the sleep policy is set to turn off the wifi when the screen is off, my tab suffered from random reboots. When I set the sleep policy to never, I have not had a random reboot in the last 3 days. My battery performance has always been excellent. Any slight decrease in the battery as a result of having the wifi sleep policy set to never is made up by getting rid of the aggravation of the random reboots.

    Coincidently, during my reboot problem, I was also suffering from an sd card problem. After a reboot, my music player sometimes failed to read my sd card. I believe that I have fixed the problem by reformatting the card and rebooting. I am not sure if the 2 issues are related.

    Interesting. I never played with the setting much, I just manually turn off the wifi before lock the screen .
