    I pulled in to the garage, it was connected to WiFi and plugged it as usual. I didn't notice anything odd last night.

    This morning, I walked to the car, the door handles presented themselves, but both displays were black. Off. That was odd. I sat in the seat. Still BLACK. I pressed the brake, still off.

    I have my car set to stay connected at all times since I am plugged it when home.

    I tried the double scroll wheel press - no response. I was about to panic when I remembered the above the scroll wheel double press. I am not sure it that did the trick or if my anxiety did something, but the driver display came on and said something like "Please wait while powering up". The center console had a T on it for 30-45 seconds until it came back to life then all was normal.

    I should add that like another post here, NAV had to reinitialize too.

    Anyone have any idea what caused this?

    Thanks.

    My car will do that about once a week if on energy saving. I just wait for it to come up on it's own. I just don't use energy saving unless leaving the car not plugged in
