Default 4.2 random reboots

I flashed the 4.2 update zip through twrp recovery and since I've been having random reboots (watching youtube, playing a game, reading a forum, or just doing nothing).

Is anyone else experiencing something similar?

Same here. I had a random reboot while just sitting at the homescreen. Never had that happen before in two months of owning it. N7 has been my most stable Android yet until 4.2...

I just had mine reboot while it was sitting unused on my desk. I saw a flash and looked up and the boot animation was going. I hadn't touched it in at least an hour or two.

Never saw that behavior before 4.2.

Edit: Sorry forgot to add I'm stock. Not unlocked or rooted, stock OTA updates only.

Had the same thing after doing an OTA update (stock). Right after the update everything worked fine. It started to get bad a few hours after I added a second user (just for the fun of it). I had terrible lag and sometimes the N7 just rebooted Today I did a factory reset and now (at least at the moment) everything is fine. N7 has also been my most stable Android, and 4.2 was the first time ever I had to do a factory reset (note that I also have the Transformer Prime which was very unstable and laggy until 4.1 !)

So I did a factory reset and now Play Store keeps giving me an error saying "Update could not be downloaded due to an error" whenever I try to update the system apps, and a similar error when I try to download a new app.

The connection is working, I tested it by browsing with Chrome and by browsing the store itself.

Weird stuff.

update:
I solved the playstore issue by deleting and re-adding my google account.

Random reboot here also. The one that I know of just happened while sitting here at my desk. Noticed the Nexus 'X' boot logo on the screen. Battery life blows now, too.

Did the OTA update to 4.2 the first night it was available. Never unlocked or rooted.

Just got one too. Just woke it up and started Google Reader and instantly got the boot screen. Stock OTA, unlocked & rooted.
