BRAKES LOCKING UP WHEN ENGINE IS HOT

Brakes problem

My brakes tends to lock up by itself even when I'm not stepping on the brake pedals. This only happens when the engine is on normal operating temperature of 180 or more. It feels like there's brake fuid pressure surge that is causing this problem but I'll leave it up to your diagnosis to tell me. Also is there a relationship between the brakes and the power steering entertwined by a common system?
