    Close all background apps. Double tap home button. Active task bar appears tap and hold any icon until it wobbles and displays a red minus sign then tap the red minus sign on all active background apps. This does not delete programs, it removes them from memory.

    Once active task bar is empty tap home button to return to home screen. Once on home screen press and hold the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide to power off. Once powered down power back up and see if problem has stopped. A power cycle alone does not remove background apps which would explain your recurring unprompted restarts.
