Hi there,

playing around in the sandbox mission I forgot to switch on the laser cooling in time and fried my batteries. I decided to go on with my journey and noticed the following when leaving SAN.
The VMS and the instrument lighting were off and the MFD and ECS told me they were initializing. After a couple of seconds all was well again.
I could reproduce the behaviour by switching off the batteries manually. It makes no difference if the fuel cells are tied or not.

Hope it helps.
