Power cycling is the act of restarting a device by turning it off and then back on. This is often done to electronic equipment to reset it if the equipment seems to be malfunctioning.

If the Brain is frozen, and the buttons are not responsive, try removing the VEX IQ Battery and then re-installing it. See this article to see how to install and remove the VEX IQ Battery.
