Try a factory reset (I think you already have). Double check the mains connections and make sure the mains lead is securely plugged in the the amp. If the problem persists either return the amp to your supplier for a replacement or take it in to an authorised Line 6 Repair Centre with your proof of purchase.

Thanks Nick. Yes I've tried resetting and reloading firmware. It happened one time again today.
I marked your answer as helpful but I don't think my question is answered. It requires a simple volt measure test.
Small voltage drops are perfectly normal in every outlet everywhere and all gear I know of can handle it.
It would be great if Line6 or someone here could do a little simple safe voltage test and investigate this rather serious issue.
This thread also discuss this problem: http://line6.com/community/message/155136

if reflashing didn't fix your problem, please contact your Line6 dealer, to have your Spider IV serviced

I have experienced this too. It's happened a few times since I bought it last week (June 13th 2010). It's not happening in a reliable or consistent manner so it will be interesting when I bring it back to the store and try to explain to them the problem. I think they won't believe me.
Ironically, I had already researched this amp and knew about the reports of rebooting/restarting before I bought the amp. While standing at the store counter, I told the store employee that a few other owners had this problem and asked if he knew about it. He looked doubtfully surprised and said they haven't had an unusual amount of returns/repairs on it. Boy, how easy is it going to be to get him to reproduce the problem if it's not consistent???
Side note: I also have experienced a problem where the amp model just changed on it's own. I suspect it's because the dials on my SPIDER IV are so very loose and sensitive (and the models are very close to each other as you rotate the dial) that the vibration from the loud volume shifted to another amp model!!! This sucked as I was in the middle of a song with the band and it went from a clean to a heavy tone. As soon as I switched the channel back, it was fine. I'm not 100% sure if the vibration is the cause. It's not happening consistently and the time it switched went from a very clean OD to a very heavy one.
I own a spider III, Spider IV, Uber Metal, KB37, Pod2.0, FBV Express and FBV Express mkii. I'm happy with ever product including the IV but I'm a little frustrated that I'm having problems like this.

Thanks for sharing.
I have not had any reboot problems for the last 5 days, playing 2-3 hours a day. I have tried turning on other normal household gear at the same time but I can't recreate the problem. So if it's not a power volt problem, could it be cold solder joints or the firmware? The reboot happens very randomly.
I did have another problem 4 days ago. The amp went totally silent when I pressed the down arrow on the amp to change user bank. The display and lights were ok, but the amp made a little sound, like when it's turned on/off, then silence. I had to turn the amp off and back on and it was all good again. I read in an earlier thread that this has happened before.
These problems are all very random and can't be recreated on demand.
I don't feel like returning my amp yet (being without if for several weeks) since several users have reported that they have returned the amp and gotten brand new ones with the same problem again.
I really hope that Line6 are looking into this and investigate further, troubleshooting the firmware and checking the components.
Could this be another X3Live problem case where bad components needed changing, for free?

I purchased the amp 7 days ago, which was within the grace period of the purchase I made. I got a store credit and will likly purchase as VOX VT50. Sorry Line 6, but I just don't want to deal with this again if I trade for a new amp.

It's been a year and a half and Line 6 still hasn't fixed this problem? Just got a spider iv 75 yesterday (12-16-2011) and updated it to 2.00. Rebooted 3 times in 30 minutes of playing.

Sorry you are having problems, but it's not EVERY amp that is doing this. I'd check my power supply first, and the power cord. I've had my Spider IV 75 since the summer with no issues.
