my device is doing that same thing too....it restarted yesterday and today all of a sudden. I dont know if it is an app that is causing it but i rebooted my phone. It is also making a ringing noise too when i turn it off or on.

My Atrix has also rebooted itself a few times. Not sure what the cause is. I did load LauncherPro to make the phone easier to use.

Since the GB update my phone reboots after I unplug the USB when connected to my computer as well as randomly for no apparent reason at all. I saw somewhere that some issues caused by the update can be eliminated by doing a factory reset but I don't have the energy to reinstall all my apps.

This has happened three times to me so far. The first two where while i was using Winamp and the third was while using Pandora. It appears that the phone is completely dead, but i think it's still on, despite pressing the power button numerous times. After the latest power issue, I held the power button down until I got a response, and about 7 seconds later the At&t non-motion screen displayed and immediately went to the homescreen a couple of seconds later.
As far as I know, there is no hibernation feature for the Atrix, so it seems like the UI is locked up and it's doing a soft reset. I haven't tried to let the phone sit and restart on it's own and I don't know if it will, but I'll see what happens when it happens again.

I also have that problem. It all started after the Gingerbread update. My phone is not rooted or anything like that. It has the original Motorola update!!! I amgetting kind of annoyed at this problem, because the Atrix worked beautifully with the 2.2 OS and the 2.3.4 was suppossed to make it better. But I can't find the 1080p recording option AND it keeps restartig... hopefully they ( AT&T and Motorola) can fix this EXTREMELY Annoying issue.

Yeah, I am having the problem as well.
The phone isn't rebooting in the typical sense of seeing the motorola logo again, but it acts as if you pressed the power button on the back and then blinks out. The most fristrating thing is that the problem is intermittant. Every once in a while I will go to swipe the updates at the very top of the screen(or touch the screen AFTER unlocking it), and then -blink- the screen goes dark. I have tried doing a full reboot, but that does not always have an effect. I am stunned, I just got the phone last week and am still getting used to it, but this is really frustrating.

I also have this problem. Got my Atrix last Thursday and it came with Gingerbread. I've done factory restores twice, and wiped cache but it still occurs.
