I'm not sure that what you are seeing is correct. I've never seen it. Re-peaking on tilt I've seen a couple of times, but auto-stow should not come out of stow and refind the satellite, I don't think. It would defeat the safety aspects of stowing.
Don...what I'm seeing is exactly what is happening. Auto stow and then refinding Satellite, peaking and ACP. Neither my wife or I we near the computer when this happened. We heard the dish stow, then refind etc.....twice in two days.
The first time was in a heavy rain storm. The second time the rain was very light.
Also today we moved. When re deploying, I got the message our dish was not calibrated....also a first. After a dish calibration (test) it was fine.

Sorry if I made it sound like I didn't think it was happening, just that there should be, so far as I know, no way that it should. I would recommend that you report this directly to Motosat. Auto-stowing is one thing, but redeploying is another. Once down, it should stay down until you intervene.
I have experienced a similar situation as daffycanuck. I lost signal a few weeks ago and the system tried to repeak. Apparently the system had lost track of exactly where it was so it stowed, somewhat like a mini recalibration, and immediately started back up and locked on. I have only had it happen once.
