NodeMCU rst pin

I notice this RST pin and wonder, does that cause the device to essentially turn itself on and off? I ask because yesterday, for some reason the device was not responding to the browser, so maybe i should have it turn off and on ever so many hours to keep it connected.

Any ideas on that?

RST pin is for resetting MCU. For auto shut down you can use a couple of MOSFETs.

If you just digitalwrite to the pin does it reset itself?
