Heat problems with newer computers can cause auto reboots at random times.. check your CPU to make sure it's not getting too hot.

Heat can be a problem as mentioned before, or memory. If you have a stack of distros you've tried, do any of them have memory checks when booting off the CD (I know SuSE does)? Try leaving one for a few hours and see if anything naughty comes back about your RAM.
