I have that -- it's normal, it's your muscle going into spasm. I used to get it most nights.
Best things to do for curing it is to stand up immediately, even though it hurts, and straighten out your leg putting all your weight on it. Fixes it every time.
Prevention: eat bananas! Apparently cramps can be caused by a lack of potassium
Really random, and excruciatingly painful cramps in calf watch

I get this occasionally. The best way to stop cramp is to stretch the muscle that is cramping. So if it's your calf that is cramping then keep your leg straight and pull your foot upwards.
