English term or phrase:You may also need to power cycle the device
No specific context. Just a software string.
How would you translate "to power cycle"?
Thanks for your help,
Explanation: Power cycle means you turn your computer off and then back on again in order to get rid of a problem (I do it all the time...)
"power cycle vt.
(also, `cycle power' or just `cycle') To power off a machine and then power it on immediately, with the intention of
clearing some kind of hung or gronked state."
where: "A hung state is distinguished from crashed or down,
where the program or system is also unusable but because it is not running rather than because it is waiting for
something. However, the recovery from both situations is often the same."
Linux talks about "cycle d'allumage", but seems to be the only one to do so.
