" ...  1) I only had it for 2 days before it started randomly rebooting. ... It reboots and reboots and reboots. ... It loses the settings after one of its random reboots, although annoyingly enough, it will keep the setting to use the schedule, so if I stupidly set it (in hopes of it actually working to shut off at 9PM and come on at 7AM) it starts turning on at 9PM and off at 7AM. ... I rarely bother to turn it on because it's just annoying when it starts rebooting randomly.  ...  "
