Android Central Question

This seems to happen most nights, but I can't recall if every night. Yesterday I awoke at 6am and it was off. This morning I awoke at 7am and it had restarted. My alarm is set for 8am usually !! My concern is my alarm won't wake me for work !!

Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Try booting the phone into Safe Mode before you go to sleep, and see if the reboots still happen overnight.

Go into settings and search for an option to power off/on your phone at scheduled times. I forgot exactly where to look. Huawei phones have an option to power cycle automatically available to them. Sounds like you have that enabled.
