If there's a storm headed your way and you suspect the power may go out, consider putting your Alexa-enabled device in "do not disturb" mode. To do this, simply say, "Alexa, do not disturb." If the power returns in the middle of the night, you won't be awakened when your device reboots and Alexa loudly announces, "HELLO!"

Do not disturb mode must be turned on individually for each Alexa-enabled device and you will still be able to issue commands to your device while in this mode.
