Deep Sleep not working



  • I'm using a LoPy + Pysense with the latest firmware (1.7.5b2) and today's Pysense libraries from Github.

    With this minimal program:

    import pycom
    import utime
    from lib.pysense import Pysense
    
    py = Pysense()
    pycom.rgbled(0xff00ff)
    utime.sleep_ms(1000)
    pycom.rgbled(0xff0000)
    utime.sleep_ms(1000)
    py.setup_sleep(3)
    py.go_to_sleep()
    

    ...the LED should turn pink for 1 second, then red for 1 second, and then sleep for 3 seconds.

    What happens is that the LED turns pink, then red, and then stays red.

    The USB device can still be found on the computer and I can still connect to the LoPy via WLAN (though usually not get a shell).

    Sometimes I managed to get into the shell via WLAN when waiting for a while and saw this error message:

      Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "main.py", line 10, in <module>
      File "lib/pysense.py", line 138, in setup_sleep
      File "lib/pysense.py", line 157, in calibrate_rtc
    IndexError: list index out of range
    

    Any ideas? Was the current library successfully tested with the current Pysense board?



  • Just discovered another oddity:
    Running the pytrack for a whole night the PIC on the pytrack seems to have locked up some how which caused the following loop being repeated infinite times. No clue why the lopy resets in the first place tough ...

    Does anybody know if there is a way to perform a reset of the pic from the lopy?



  • @dbrgn I had the same problem and solved it in the same way. In my case it was the older firmware that does not support a call to "I2C.deinit()" causing a hang. The newer firmware does support it.



  • Ah, you are right. It does not freeze, connecting from telnet is still possible afterwards! Still the serial connection is in a strange state. Trying to connect over a serial connection does work but I my case chars typed on the serial console will not show up, however they show up in the telnet connection (very strange...) Looks like tx from the pc over the serial connection is working but not rx ... (that made me believe it freezed).



  • @this.wiederkehr I'm having similar problems that the serial connection immediately drops when calling setup_sleep. Probably the same underlying issue. I don't think it freezes in my case though.



  • I am having some issues with sleep on the pytrack (and lopy) too. I am on the newest firmware 1.7.6.b1 and the Pysense firmware to 0.0.3. There seems to be an interference between serial communication over the uart (connected over the micro usb port of the pytrack) to the pc and the calibrate_rtc function (this function is called when doing Pytrack().setup_sleep().

    Specifically: If I call calibrate_rtc over the serial connection the board will immediatly freeze, even a reset of the lopy is not enough to recover the pytrack. To recover from this I have to powercycle the pytrack thus i think this is an issue in the pic firmware.

    If I do not have a serial connection from the pc open and call the function calibrate_rtc from telnet everything seems fine.

    @daniel: Is a serial connection during calibrate_rtc not supported or is this an issue in the firmware of the pic?



  • It seems to work now after upgrading the LoPy firmware to 1.7.6.b1 and the Pysense firmware to 0.0.3.
