I usually charge my Lumia 710 while I'm sleeping. It is happened now twice that during the night Lumia vibrates and restarts itself. After that it will ask PIN code and so on. This does not happen every time and never when not being charged.
I talked today with Nokia via Chat and the person there said that this is a feature but it sounds a bit weird? It is annoying to wake up because the phone is making noise and nobody could call you because the phone is asking PIN code.
Has anybody else noticed this kind of behavior?

Do you mean the phone restarts or starts when charging?
If you mean 'starts' it is indeed by design (or a feature if you like). Windows Phone is an always on-design, meaning it only has two modes on or off.
Charging also occurs in on-mode. There is no charge-mode (other than when the battery is very low, then it has a special animation it shows before booting into the main OS). So if you plug in a charger it will switch to on, and boot the main OS.
If you want to use overnight charging and not being disturbed, just put the phone in airplaine mode or just silence the ringer.
if you however mean that it 'restarts' in the sense that your phone is already on, and restarts during charging it is a bug and not a feature.
I got the same problem. every time i try to charge my phone and like to turn it off, it restarts... no idea to turn it off and to charge it.
is charging while turned off possible?

Thank you for your posts!
I have experienced this issue myself as well and started getting it after I re-inserting my SIM card. As the charger port is located directly above the SIM card slot, would it be possible that your SIM card has not been inserted properly or gotten loose? This may happen easily if you have cut the SIM card yourself.
Let us know if this helps,
