    Telus? Yup. They're dumb but definitely triggered by something I try to make the phone do that it disagrees with.

    Well, ive been thinking about this recently - after a couple of especially glitchy days... must be the heat

    I dont remember suffering random reboots before (and ive been on 2.1 update1 since day 1). But two things had changed:

    installed auto task killer
    randomly fiddled with vsel settings for 1000/ 900/ 800 mhz overclocks

    So - i have found a relatively stable vsel value of 56@900. And i have stopped using automatic task killers. Now i simply hit up control panel and hold.

    What do you know... no more random reboots, just like before

    To conclude - they are not happening by faulty design on my milestone. Please, correct me if im wrong to assume so...

    Edit: i should say i noticed 0 benefit from auto task killer.

    So you saying about heat, but how do I reduce the heat? I'm not rooted and the random reboots are killing me.

    Just to add, mine is a soft reboot, which means when reboot, it straightaway goes to the android screen and not the telco brand.

    Telus Milestone, stock 2.1-update1, rooted, lightly themed, but not overclocked... And no random reboots.

    I did have a magnet-free case that would kill the battery in under 2 hours, and leave the battery cover uncomfortably warm. I determined it would only happen if the phone was "on" inside the case-- I'm guessing some button was being pressed.

    Other than that, the phone's been solid. No auto-task killer (well, outside of the native OS), but I do have advanced task killer which I use on occasion.

    ... just another data point if anyone cares.

    bryant_16 - are you using a taskkiller? my guess is that it is responsible. For example, android os may be dealing with a background overflow at the moment when you put the phone to sleep. If at this point a auto task killer simply removes the cache for the affected app from memory, the system would likely crash.

    Hi there,

    I'm not using any task-killers or any similar related applications. I'm using stock firmware.
