I'm surprised they were so honest in their communications about the issue. Would've expected far more generic explanations than that.

It's analogous to rebooting your phone or computer when it glitches.

If after the engine start you turn off the APU too soon (and the aircraft has not properly switched to engine generators) it can mean a three hour delay!
A while back I actually had the ground power fail at an outstation, that resulted in a serious delay (on a 787) and coincidentally a week later the same scenario on the 777 and no problems at all.

We usually tell the pilots we'll be down there shortly to have a look but in the mean time turn everything off so the cockpit is 100% dark, have a sip or two of coffee, then turn it on again and see what it does. In my experience probably 6 or 7 out of 10 times the problem goes away and the airplane proceeds to fly around all day long with no further issues.
