Thumbs down Scariest Moment Yet

Driving home at 2am this morning on the turnpike, the MFT screen froze. A flash showed up on the screen. It was an error message that looks like it would appear on a Windows PC. That quickly disappeared. Instantly, the MFT screen went black. No power, no music, nothing. All shut off. After that, the mini screen in the gauge cluster went black, followed by the LED backlights of the gauges, followed by the ambient lighting. I quickly pulled over thinking something was seriously wrong. I shut the car down, waited a few minutes, turned it back on and the MFT screen said Sync, then performed "Scheduled system maintenance." The loading bar did not finish, the screen went black for 5 minutes, then Sync reappeared, then the system maintenance completed. The rest of the way home was fine. This is the second time this week that the MFT screen has frozen and performed this update. But this is the first time everything turned off on me. Any ideas why this happened?
