Rebooted my car today

I suppose it is inevitable. I started my Prius hybrid yesterday, and the dash and display lit up like a Christmas tree, with several unsettling lights including a red one with a giant exclamation point stabbing through an outline of the car. Called the dealer. They said “We’ve seen several of these. Try driving it and if something is really wrong, we’ll come down and tow it to our service center.” So today I started it and only one light came on, the “Check Engine” light. I drove it a couple of miles to the convenience store to buy wine. Picked out an Austrian Gruener Veltliner. Restarted the car. The lights were gone.
This is the first time since owning the car for two and a half years that I have had to reboot the car. But can you imagine if the car computer was running Windows?
