So, good group to ask, probably... anyone have suggestions for a low-

That doesn't require constant rebooting?
I can't comment to the rebooting, but a couple of years ago I looked at the Allied-Telesis AT-9000-28SP, which is a
smack steeply priced (~$1,500) but has flexible optics and is managed. And at ~35 watts is the lowest powered managed
gigabit switch I was able to find for our solar powered telescopes. The grant that was going to fund that fell
through, so I'm still running the 90W+ Catalyst 2900XL with two 1000Base-X modules and 24 10/100 ports instead, but the
AT unit looked pretty good as a pretty much direct replacement with extra bandwidth.
