Occasionally no power at center console on start up, okay if I restart?

I have kind of a weird problem with my 2009 Forester w/~ 50K miles. Over the last year when I start the car occasionally the center console has no power so the audio pack, the AC controls, and then garage door buttons on the rearview mirror don't work. If I stop and turn off and restart the vehicle power comes on and everything seems fine. Has anybody else experienced a similar issue? I don't have an electrical diagram so not sure what control the power that fails to come on.

In 2009 the car should be CANbus, and my guess is that there is an error in the BIU which controls pretty much all the user interface things inside.
