Proxmark sometimes reboot


I use my proxmark for several weeks and I noticed a annoying problem. When i plug my proxmark, it often reboots after 10-20 seconds (i hear the "click"), and when I launch the CLI client too early, i can see unexpected output, like this :

#db# unknown command:: 0x350d410d          
#db# unknown command:: 0x350d4154          
#db# unknown command:: 0x350d4123          
#db# unknown command:: 0x350d4150          
#db# unknown command:: 0x350d414f          
#db# unknown command:: 0x350d4152          
#db# unknown command:: 0x350d4154          
#db# unknown command:: 0x350d4143          
#db# unknown command:: 0x350d4146          
#db# unknown command:: 0x350d4147

Sometimes, the device keeps rebooting if I do not launch the client soon enough.

My question is : is it regular to wait 30 seconds after plugging before launching the Client ?

I work on this OS :

4.15.0-kali2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.15.11-1kali1 (2018-03-21) x86_64 GNU/Linux
