Well the first problem is to find the thing to turn off and on again. It's not always clear what device is misbehaving.

Also, frequently you'll need to report to the "higher ups" what went wrong. Saying "I dunno, I turned it off and on again and it works now. shrug" makes you look like you don't know what's going on. It's much better to be able to explain what happened.
