  • something in a cron file that runs every hour at that x:17 … like, for example, /etc/crontab runs everything in /etc/cron.hourly at 17 minutes past the hour – so, something in that folder is failing spectacularly – check the logs in /var/log – Jaromanda X 5 hours ago 
  • Do you have anything in the area that could be tripping the power e.g. electric heaters / water boiler or such? Also what happens if you change the time on the Pi? Does the reboot move or stay at the same time? – Andyroo 4 hours ago
  • 3in a console, type crontab -l and add the output to your question. – Michael Harvey 2 hours ago

That is interesting. I scratched my rusty little head for 5 minutes but still could not figure out why the number 17/18 is so special to cause the trouble. BTW, I am not at all a Rpi newbie, so I think your IQ question is at or above the ninja level.
