Help My G1 factory reset itself.

My phone was working perfectly as always as I downloaded a few new apps to try out (from the app store). I set my phone on top of my entertainment center to clean a bit. After finishing my chores, I picked up my phone to check the time and the screen was back at the log in screen that syncs you up with your gmail account. I logged back in and found all of my widgets had a failed to load icon where they were and all but a few apps forced close when I tried to start them up. Needless to say, I deleated all the new apps I was trying out and had to reinstall all my older apps. The only thing out of the ordinary was a text message with no words just numbers in it. Was this a bug, a virus, is my phone dying? I lost a bunch of information I had on several apps, like my note pad app for one. How can I keep this from happening again?
