Ditto here.  I just leave the DC power supply turned on all the time and 
that's the end to that problem. If I'm going away from home for an 
extended period of time, of course, I shut down the DC supply. 
Otherwise, it stays on 24 hours a day, allowing for the Omni 6+ to 
always be at peak stability.
