MacBook Pro restarts randomly. Heat sink?

MBP, whether running on battery or plugged into AC adapter, restarts 3 times after sitting overnight. Then randomly (could be minutes or hours) any time after that will restart. Possible heat sink issue?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I've been reading about Random Shutdown Syndrome but I'm not sure restarting opposed to shutting down is a symptom. I've also been reading about reapplying thermal paste and/or replacing the heat sink. I suppose I have to take a look at the thermal paste but it makes me nervous.
