Always works for me

NASA has been having some system problems with its Kepler spacecraft designed to survey regions of the Milky Way for Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone. Whilst probably slightly under playing the work of the scientists and engineers, my interpretation of the explanation that power-cycling the onboard computers and subsystems appears to have cleared the problem is that turning stuff off and on sorted things.
