Unhappy Power Keeps Turning Off

I leave my S50 powered up in a car dock in my house overnight each night to record howard. Lately when I get up in the porning I find it is powered down and it didn't record.

Anyone else run into this? Any idea how to fix it?

Seems to help if I really jam it hard down into the dock, but that doesn't always do it. The strange thing is: it is on and working fine when I go to bed...

Mysterious, random shutdowns have plagued many S50 owners from day one. This problem was expecially bad with early receivers.

My 4th S50 is way better than the first 3 were, but even this one shuts down once in a while for no apparent reason. I was out of the country last summer and returned to find a shut down receiver and zero of the programmed Stern shows (it shut down the day after I left). More recently, I returned from a vacation in FL to a working receiver and a full week of programmed Stern shows. Go figure!

When (more likely, if, since my current S50 works pretty well) I get ready to upgrade to the Stiletto with another BB exchange, this random shutdown possibility would be one of the reasons.

Default Porning!

OMG, I just noticed my Fruedian slip: "porning"! I meant to say "morning"... I guess I am a true Stern fan...
