Hi goliveuk

Have you got automatic updates configured to automatically install?

This could be the automatice updates restarting the server.

This is a link to a post suggesting that this is logged by the updates service, I know it's for Windows 7 but I've seen others for Server 2008.

Just check your automatic updates and at what time they are due to install, if the reboot is around this time then bingo you have your answer.
