I know this has been suggestion over 2 years ago but with S2 it would be a good addition. Sometimes getting to specific speakers ac outlets can be difficult. An option to either reboot individual speakers/devices from the app OR a full system reboot would be nice. Sometimes speakers that have been on for months at a time need a reboot, especially if you’ve made network changes in your home.  
 

thanks for listening!

Hi @ajx8141, Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the community. Thank you for your detailed post outlining the issue and that is a very good suggestion. We appreciate you taking out to share your experience with us. We'll make sure that we'll pass this on to our engineering team as a feature request. Rest assured that we'll try our best to improve your experience with our Sonos products.  

Let us know how you get on with the advice above.

A bit of revision. The engineering team locked out this option (http://x.x.x.x:1400/reboot) a good while ago, evidently on security grounds.

It had existed for years before that. In the later stages they put it behind a CSRF token handshake but now even that facility is withdrawn.

Yes, as above, it was removed along with lots of other useful options from that page.

I do feel there's a real case for reintroducing that one (and others) as options from within the App.

I really wish the current queue would be made persistent after a reboot too.  They ‘survive’ planned reboots as part of updates.

Yes I have seen this option but I never got a chance to use it with my somewhat newer items. I really hope they reconsider adding this back. 
This system reminds me of my Mesh router system. I can go in and individually reboot each one right from the app (no matter where I am). This feature made me realize that it should be that easy to do in the Sonos app as well.
