Is there any way to force a clean restart from a running TAP?

I am wondering if I can work around the bug where a Toppy in standby loses power, resets its clock and then never records anything....

I believe I have read that a Toppy which is powered up, will auto-powerup after a power cut?!

On the other hand a permanently up Toppy will not trigger JAG's EPG to load EPG info.

So the idea is to write a TAP which:-

1) Forces a clean reset @1am - so JAG's runs at restart, realises it is in its window and starts scanning.
2) Turns timeslip on/off at certain times, to save power and reduce heat output.

The periodic reset would also, help avoid memory leak style problems which nightly powerdown (to standby) avoids...

Any ideas?

Cheers
Mark

PowerManager is designed to turn it off at a set time. At some point I plan to get it to turn it on again at a set time too, but events are scheming against me getting any time to look at that at the moment.

It is listed in the TAPs area.

No, the source isn't widely available and it isn't really in a state that someone else could pick it up easily at the moment.
