My 770 sometimes reboot while I'm reading an e-book in FBReader.
/proc/bootreason indicates it's a software reboot, and
/var/lib/dsme/stats show maemo_af_desktop is at fault.  I initially
suspected the osso-statusbar-cpu plugin, but I still get reboots after I
replaced it with load-applet and panel-clock.

Once I got a spontaneous reboot with the 32_wd boot reason.  This is the
software watchdog, right?  How soon is it supposed to kick in?  The
device was responsive and the CPU applet didn't show any high load a
couple of seconds before the reboot, so I found the watchdog reset

I haven't noticed any spontaneous power-ons yet, but then again I never
turn my 770 off.

Really?  It seemed pretty natural to me.  Well, I'be been using a Palm
like this for a couple of years before I got a 770.
