Low Power


The standby function attempt to put devices into lowest power sleep mode for a specified time, most likely involving a full reset on wake-up.

import { standby } from "@devicescript/runtime"

console.log("going to sleep for 1 hour...")
// highlight_next_line
await standby(3600_000) // shut down for 1 hour

Use allow to save on battery power for long running operation where the device should mostly be idle in between sensor readings.


standby is available on ESP32 chip currently.
