This article will go through how to schedule a daily reboot for Chrome Devices with Chrome Device Management.
Scheduling device reboots are recommended as it allows for the app to undergo a fresh restart daily to help the app perform more optimally and stable. Any device and/or app running consistently for extended periods of time, not secluded to just digital signage, can come across crashes or app issues on occasion. These features can help your Chrome devices perform best for digital signage.

How to reboot your Chrome Device manually

Schedule daily reboots for your Chrome Device
Please follow the steps below to navigate to the Power and shutdown setting.
- Visit your Google Admin Console.
- Click on the 3 line icon to the left of Google Admin to open the Main Menu sidebar.
- In the Main Menu sidebar, select Devices > Chrome > Settings and finally select Device.
- You will now open on to the Device settings page.
Optional: select your specific child organizational unit if you don't want this to apply to all Chrome OS devices in the head organizational unit (ex. screencloudtest.com in the image sample). By default, an organization inherits the settings of its parent in the organization tree. However, you can override the inherited setting by explicitly changing the setting for the child organization. The new setting applies to users in that organization, and any of its children.
- Find Power and shutdown.
- If it isn't already set, please set the uptime limit under Scheduled reboot to 1, and end by selecting Save on the top right corner.
Settings typically take effect in minutes, but they might take up to 24 hours to apply for all devices.
You can refer to this page under "Scheduled Reboot" for more information.
