power cycle

(Or "cycle power", "cycle") To turn a machine's power off and on, with the intention of clearing some kind of hung or gronked state. Synonym 120 reset; see also Big Red Switch. Compare Vulcan nerve pinch, bounce and boot, and see the AI Koan about Tom Knight and the novice.

Adding to the theme of exact timekeeping, Lange has fitted the watch with a combination jumping seconds mechanism (meaning the seconds hand appears to tick instead of sweep) and something called a "remontoir," which maintains the watch's accuracy throughout its entire power cycle instead of getting less accurate as power winds down.
"They still have some way to go, to deal with size of battery and power cycle rounds, but if solvable, it's a very big breakthrough," he told Reuters.
