I can't comment to the rebooting, but a couple of years ago I looked at the Allied-Telesis AT-9000-28SP, which is a smack steeply priced (~$1,500) but has flexible optics and is managed. And at ~35 watts is the lowest powered managed gigabit switch I was able to find for our solar powered telescopes. The grant that was going to fund that fell through, so I'm still running the 90W+ Catalyst 2900XL with two 1000Base-X modules and 24 10/100 ports instead, but the AT unit looked pretty good as a pretty much direct replacement with extra bandwidth.
