Welcome to the community.
Can you force shut down your device by holding the power and volume up key?

This post is quite long since it concernes three phones.
Over the last 2 or three months a total of 3 Xperia L Phones in my Family have begun to randomly reboot without requesting the PIN to unlock the phone.
At first we only noticed this problem on my mothers phone (the newest just a bit over 2 jears old) when she tried to read her E-Mails, wasn't a big problem then since she doesn't do that often. A few weeks later my fathers phone (the oldest at over 3 years) also started to have ths problem, here it apeared to be completly random.
Once 2 phones had the same problem I suspected a Software Issue and since it appeared for several weeks that only the Phones of my parents had this problem, I checked for apps common to those phones which werent installed on mine but couldnt find any.
This week after installing an update for the Sony Music Player on my phone (about 2,5 years old) it to started too randomly reboot, since it started immedeatly after an update I uninstalled the Music App completly but the problem remained. While the reboots happen randomly (once while changing the orientation of my Firefox browser, once after hitting Snooze on an alarm, a few times while it was just lying on the table), I've observed that after the phone has been on for a few hours that opening the Google Play Store App has a good chance of triggering this bug. If it does the phone freezes for a few seconds and reboots without requesting the PIN code.
I would be thankful for any suggestions on how to fix this problem

You should all try @nolramlb's suggestion. It will commonly resolve most self restarting problems, along with all other software issues as it completely re-installs Android.

I have experienced in restart problem perhaps for one years. I couldn't solve it. sony repair, firmware upgrade, downgrade haven't solved my problem. I saw that all repair programs and firmware updates dosn't erase all the data form phone. This may be the source of problem. or a hardware problem exist. But, SONY doesn't say it was a hardware problem. If not, solve it
I have xperia L phone, after open (on) wireless (mostly doesn't open ), phone start restarting. before restarting if I can close wireless phone stops restarting. and I'm using it without wifi, bluetooth. also there is problem I think with GPS, but I'm not sure from that.
I have to change my phone.
