Are you sure it is related to the iPod?  I recall similar reboots when
I left my NetBSD laptop running overnight compiling packages; I also
noticed that on occasion, it would enter some state of limbo shortly
after being left unattended, continuing the compilation only after
some keyboard event the next morning (judging on the basis of binary
package creation times); the screen would go completely black too
(i.e. no backlight).  The black screen happens frequently enough, but
not always, when I leave the laptop unattended for a while.
