Not a power cycle

"The pointing tables and science targets – instructions that tell the spacecraft where to look and at what – were reloaded and confirmed, onboard logs and counters were reset, and a new command sequence was created, tested and uploaded to account for the late start of the campaign."

That is not a power cycle it's more like pushing policy in checkpoint to unstuck things.
