OK, well now it sounds like your power button is on its way out. Mine was doing that (my phone's had all kinds of issues, but it's good now... minus a working USB port lol) maybe 8 months back, with symptoms just like yours.
Question: Do you ever see the Power Menu screen randomly pop up?
I would see that (sometimes) then it would reboot by itself. It would also reboot by itself while in recovery, and would not stay OFF if I had a battery reinserted.
I looked online for a solution, which led to dismantling the phone and cleaning inside the power button as well as i could, with alcohol. No dice
This went on for a few days and i was already looking for another phone. I was on JB Touchwiz with Agat's kernel at the time, so I rebooted into recovery and flashed OldMan CM9, hoping it wouldn't reboot mid-flash... Flashed fine without rebooting.
But when I booted into CM9, the issue had completely disappeared, no BS!! I have no explanation for this, as I was positive it was a hardware issue, but it worked. I have never had a Power Button issue since, regardless of ROM (I'm a registered flashaholic). Hope this helps.
