Default Did I have a power brownout?

At 10:41 last night, my Sony TV shut itself off for about 30 seconds, then came back on. That kind of surprised me, because, I thought that I'd have to turn it back on myself. While the TV was off, the digital clock next to the TV (no battery backup) stayed on. When the TV relay clicked, turning the TV back on, the clock display slightly dimmed for an instant. I checked all the other digital clocks in the house, and they were all working. I thought they would be flashing. The only other problem I noticed, which may indicate that it was not a TV problem, is this morning, my modem/router had to be rebooted. Is it possible that I had a brown out the turned off the TV and stopped the modem, but that there was enough power to keep the clocks working?

It may have been like a nanosecond it went out, or it had a lowering or power thats real common. (brownout.) AC power is very unreliable and flucuates all day long. If a person on the street uses a power tool that takes up lots a amps, it will affect your power with drops. When they cease use, pwr will "jump" back to where it was.
Appliances will take a huge amount to start, once started it drops to normal. ( Like a Fridge or clothes washer)
It's not voltage but amps that kill. ONly one solution, as some areas have worse than others, is a UPS and of couse a pwr conditionewr and a surge outlet protector.
