Cruising at FL400 at mach .855; when the auto throttles started moving back toward idle. EICAS message showed flaps drive. We completed the flaps drive checklist. Then called dispatch and talked to maintenance about the problem. Declared an emergency and diverted. We did not dump fuel because this would be under the max landing weight. We made a no flap landing.
