Although repetitive power reboot testing provides product development engineers with a useful tool for detecting potential problems in new products, it can also be incredibly boring for the person responsible for actually performing the test. The task of repeatedly initiating one power reboot cycle after another, 24/7, for weeks on end is enough to drive even the most OCD person over the edge. One simple way to avoid this problem is to use Python script to control the repetitive reboot process.

Repetitive power reboot testing provides product developers with an effective means to detect hardware and software problems before a product is released to the general market. In most cases, repetitive power reboot testing involves repeatedly powering a test device off and on over a period of several weeks or even months. Given the repetitive nature of this type of regression testing, and the duration of the test, repetitive power reboot testing is a prime candidate for automation, and the process can be easily automated using Python script to initiate a series power reboot cycles.
