Recessed lights, as well as the problems above these types of lights, can also have issues with going on and off by themselves because they are equipped with a limit switch that will shut the light off automatically if the heat reaches unsafe levels. To deal with issues from heat make sure that the correct wattage light bulbs are being used if you need to use a lower wattage bulb. Also, make sure that the insulation is not too tight around recessed fixtures as it can cause heating and fire issues as well. Last, the limit switch itself may have gone bad and need to be replaced.
