My phone randomly turns off when I'm not using it. (Like when I leave it too charge overnight or don't use it for a couple hours)
What could be the problem? How to fix this problem?

Thanks,
Benwaffle

if it happens again after you changed the kernel, try a different rom and stay away from overclocking it and stuff. can't hurt to inspect your battery contacts if you spilled anything near it.

Turns off or locks? some people are getting it to lock it's called the sleep death and happens if you put your phone to charge at night with Wifi on. Some people try different Roms to fix this issue.

That was a very helpful post.....Nah just kidding it doesn't happen to everyone. I have had my phone since December last year and I can count on 1 hand how many times it has happened to me. I always charge at night with WIFI on. But when it does happen I simply hold the power button till it reboots, so not a very big issue to me.

Reviving this thread because I'm having a similar problem...
Running on stock, rooted.
It happens often enough for it to be a problem.
Only concern is when I go to sleep and rely on my phone as an alarm clock. I need my phone to work
Please note last charge cycle on the attached screenshot. Battery was at 84% and completely dead after sleeping for 8 hours. It doesn't even show me how the phone died, or what made it die.

During the day, I think I have the same problem. My phone will simply not turn on at times. I have to do a battery pull before I can get the phone to turn on again.

Re: [Q] Phone turns off randomly
Check the battery. Take it out and put it on a flat surface like wood or metal. Spin it like you would as a bottle, if it does that, then your battery is swollen and will cause problems like what you're experiencing. If that does happen, you need to replace the battery, as that is your only option. Sorry . It happened to me, but i was covered under warranty.

Battery looks fine. Not visually swollen and doesn't spin on a flat surface. Wish I had another battery to test this out...
