If it was normal, you probably wouldn't be asking about it.

You're such a lot of help. That was so insightful.
I stated if it was normal because I didn't find anyone else having the problem. Perhaps it was a feature iOS6 introduced that I wasn't aware of or if it was iPhone4 specific.
If you have nothing to say, than why bother typing anything here?

No this is not normal as a matter of fact you should maybe take it in to your local apple store i have an iPhone 4S and this has never happened to me. you can also try to restore it before you take it in and maybe see if that will stop it from happening. if youre not sure how to do this let me know and i can run you through it step by step. i hope that this is helpful.

Thanks. The nearest Apple store is quite a ways for me so thought I would ask here before driving in.
I have done one restore but the problem was still there. I thought it might be something within the backup file that gets installed back after the restore.
Is there an option to restore the phone as new from the box without backups? Or does iCloud automatically send this backup to the phone soon afterwards the restore?

no you can restore it as a new phone do the restore the normal way that you would usually do it but after it reboots connect it to itunes and select new new phone do not use the backup information i believe it gives you three options. i know what you mean i have to drive 45 minutes to my nearest apple store.

Thank you, I'll give it another try and not restore from backup and see if it helps.
