Default Long-Term Backup Power

One sci-fi trope I like is finding an old ship, or an old station/facility, with minimal power, but which you can power once more and explore. And another trope - finding long-frozen people in still-functioning cryoberths. But if I recall correctly, Traveller power plants usually have limited fuel which lasts for a few weeks and then they power down. Or is there a way without deviating too much from the basic CT/MGT rules and technological assumptions, for such long-term power? This need not be long-term power for power-hungry systems such as M-Drives and energy weapons, but rather for minimal life support, emergency lighting and low berth survival.
We are but a tiny candle flickering against the darkness of our times.
