I don't see why you are sure, your machine rebooted. Did you check the logs?
Do the state a reboot? (eg. check output of `last` for a 'reboot' line).
My X server kicks me out every now and then, too. The reason here is a the
buggy fglrx driver which has a memory whole. When it uses up all the memory
(eg. when I watch movies), the X server restarts.
