	That's likely something in the daily run going wrong, try disabling
items in there one by one (by editing /etc/periodic.conf - which probably
doesn't yet exist so create it and look in /etc/defaults/periodic.conf for
details) until you get through a night without a reboot. Then the next step
is to figure out why whatever is crashing the system does so, but first
let's find out what.
