Status light patterns

    Rebound! uses the PowerKey status light to let you know that it is on the job. The colors and patterns of this light indicate when the system is running smoothly as well as when Rebound! is taking action.

Normal conditions

    When the system is running normally, the status light will indicate the communication between the PowerKey unit and software:
    solid orange computer turned off or
    PowerKey unit not connected
    solid green computer starting up, waiting for PowerKey software to start
    blinking green running normally, system timer counting down
    briefly solid green software resetting system timer
    pulsing orange computer sleeping

When the system crashes

    If the system crashes and Rebound!'s system timer expires, the status light shows you the steps of the restarting process:
    blinking green system timer counting down to zero
    short red blinks outlet turned off
    solid orange outlet turned on, sending startup signal
    green w/orange blinks computer starting up, waiting for PowerKey software to start

    If the computer restarts properly, the light will resume blinking green. If not, Rebound! will attempt additional restarts based on the "Number of restart attempts" slider setting.
    alternating red/orange PowerKey software failed to start up despite all restart attempts
