    When the power goes out and comes back on

    Good morning friends,

    "When power goes out" is "Όταν πέφτει το ρεύμα" but what expression is used when the power comes back on?

    «Όταν ανεβαίνει το ρεύμα»;

    «Όταν ξανά ανάβει το ρεύμα» somehow doesn’t sound right.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Όταν έρχεται / επιστρέφει το ρεύμα

    Ή και «όταν ξανάρθει το ρεύμα».
    Μπορούμε να πούμε και «κόβεται το ρεύμα» για το goes out.
    Life is an aberration; it appears under unusual conditions, where there is an abnormal amount of resources, and then proceeds to expand and evolve, consuming those resources until eventually it dies away, leaving behind only bare rock and empty soda cans.

    Το «όταν πέφτει» είναι σωστό, πάντως, λέγεται κι αυτό.
    The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge".
    -Isaak Asimov
