Description

There are some things I can do to reduce power consumption.
  1. Use a button connected to a gpio to turn off the hdmi.
  2. When that button is toggled I can also turn off the ACT LED.
  3. If this button is toggled I can kill some daemons that are only managing the UI since the UI is not on.

Toggling the button again will re-enable these features. These features are pretty easy to implement as long as the gpio can be read at any time.

  • Target version changed from v0.1 to Xeon 1.0 - Asimov

Update after migration from custom hardware to PinePhone Pro.

Power consumption can probably be more easily controlled on the PinePhone Pro.but I need to investigate ways of doing that.
