I just serviced the brakes and they are hydro locking slightly (i think from too much grease).

Is it a question of just using a tiny bit of grease on the slider and filling the rubber boots?

or can someone detail the correct way to grease the brake slider pins and rubber boots.

How do you mean hydro locking?

I've never known there to be too much grease on a brake slider! It usually just splatters out if there is.

Not sure really but Hydo-locking from too much grease in the rubber boots causing the brakes to stick on due to suction from the rubber boot?

The brakes are randomly locking up after the brake pedal has been applied.

check the brake hoses as they could be blocked not allowing the fluid to go back

A bit of grease will not stop a piston under pressure!
