Maybe an application is doing this??
Are you using a custom kernel or rom???
Try factory reset,if this doesn't help, send the phone to service center.

Mines just start doing this too for the past 3 nights. When phone is locked. Screen turns on and then off then after a short while turns on a. Didgain. This is after I updated phone software last week. Did you update your phone too?

No I didnt I just uninstalled few games. I also checked the running apps nothing seems to be the cause. would a factory reset erase all data on the internal memory?

Mine did that during a couple of warm nights a while back. Had a fan on, and I'm pretty sure it was the air movement from the fan that was making it happen. Really don't know why though.
