Sentry mode has turned off due to a sentry system error

This error came up twice on my first day with V10. Is this a new regression?

This happened to my S a while back. It happens when sentry mode is on too long and the car hasn’t been able to enter sleep mode. I had all sorts of weird behavior with the auto high beams not working and wipers too.

To Fix: Turn off sentry mode completely in the settings. Completely disable it. Then reboot the car by holding the two roller buttons down for 20 seconds. After a day or so re-enable sentry but this time turn on one of the settings : “disable sentry when at work or home". Apparently sentry being on 24/7 causes this issue. Sentry has to have time to turn off and the car can go into sleep mode. This will prevent issue in future. i Haven't had it since.
 
///FYI, in our case...this never happened (to our Model S) until the advent of V10 update. I leave Sentry commonly on, even when at home or work and never saw this error until V10 ///

Model S 75D with MCU 1 and AP 2 here. I, too, got this same alert today for the very first time. I installed v10 yesterday. When I got the alert this morning, I re-enabled sentry via the app, and then got the alert again about 3 hours later. I was at work and only have sentry enabled for about 9 hours a day, so definitely not on too much.
