If a tower is below 50% shields during a downtime, then all the resist bonuses granted by hardeners will no longer exist at server up, but the hardeners will still show as being online.
I experienced this last night while shooting a tower with 18 hardeners stacked against us. Before downtime we were hitting for 370-400, and after downtime we were hitting for 800-1200. The tower was at 40% shields going into downtime. It's our theory that the rules governing CPU using modules while a tower is below 50% shields somehow interfered with proper game mechanics during server startup.
