Strange behavior during power outages

There was two power outages at home this night.
But when the power came back the first time, it newer reconnected to my wifi. Instead it showed it self as per first setup,
I waited five to ten minutes. When once configured, the most wanted behaviour should be “retry infinite” sholdn’t it?

I’d try to wait a bit more. It also happens to me that the esp32 starts in AP mode sometimes, but then after a while it connects to wifi.

Well, it was about 15 minutes after the power outage.

And since it IS configured, it’s AP address should be the one configured, not the initial address.

i am experiencing some connection losses as well. after a wifi router restart it did not reconnect, i had to restart my lilygo.
