How do I do the logcat thing? Sorry for silly question still learning android lol

I'd do this: Go a few days and try to figure out what kind of activity or which app seems to bring a reboot. If it's possible to narrow it down, try to get it down to "every time I do a.), it reboots".
Then, try to see if you can get it to reboot by reproducing that activity. If you can figure out how to recreate the random reboot, this will be very helpful.
How to get a logcat: Download Android Terminal Emulator from the Play store. The idea is that you're going to start making a text copy of system logs around the moment that the reboot occurs.
To do this, open Android Terminal Emulator just before reproducing the reboot (if you can), and type the following commands:
# logcat > /sdcard/logcat.txt
Then press the hardware home key to put the terminal in the background and return you to the home screen. From here, try to get the phone to reproduce the unwanted reboot. If the phone randomly reboots, and you had the logcat copy running in the background, look on your internal sdcard to find the logcat.txt and send that to me as an attachment. Note that, unless the logcat was running at the time of the reboot, it won't be very useful. Think of it as recording what's going on at the time the issue happens.
I still think that this is most likely related to an app running on your phone, as I haven't had any reboots myself. Maybe a logcat will help us narrow it down.
Edit: Just remembered that you're using Holo launcher. By reboot, do you mean that the phone restarts at the Samsung logo and boot animation, or do you mean that the launcher restarts?
