Laptops reboot fairly often. There are probably other cases
where saving power is important.
Even with a normally on system, I don't want a big transient
when the system gets rebooted.
Personally, I make graphs to keep an eye on things. I watch
the drift wobble over a day as it tracks temperature. I subtract
off the big offset from each system so they all land at roughly
0. It's a pain to have to edit the offsets each time I reboot
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
