At present the unit is configured to shut itself down at 4am every day, and reawaken at 4:05am.
im curious why do you feel the need to turn it off for 5 minutes at 4am? for what purpose are you shutting it down and powering it back up 5 minutes later?

My thinking is that by doing that, it clears down the memory.

To explain, my IT background is with Microsoft Windows which is notoriously bad for memory leakage and poor garbage collection. If that approach isn’t necessary then I’ll disable it.

If you have apps that do things like re-inspect or re-org a database everytime you boot up, you are introducting load and disk activity which might slow down other processes and add to disk wear. I do scheduled shut downs for 7 hours and on bootup a couple of apps take over 100% of cpu for 20-30 minutes. Without rebooting, the apps would only run those routines once per week.

i personally just leave mine running (as thats what they are designed for), it seems to maintain its ram level etc without any problems, in the past there have been memory leaks but TM have released fixes for them quite quickly, the latest version for me is stable

i'm just thinking you are perhaps adding extra pressure on the nas drive and hard drives by having it shut down and boot up all the time, and then perhaps consider a weekly or monthly shutdown, but daily seems overkill
