It's been my experience that when you enable/disable MESHING, it automatically reboots the AP each time. Tested this on several occasions. However I have ran into a few issues with AP's not responding as well, which is why I setup my weekly AP reboots. In code 24.X, disabling MESHING was a VERY bad idea lol. It wasn't until 25.X that they fixed it so that it wouldn't cause issues (however a few still sneek in every once in a while, but it also might just be general bug and not related, who can really tell these days).
