Title: too fast Power-on
Post by: Farbrausch on October 26, 2004, 12:47:07 PM
Is it possible to set the Power-on delay?
Everytime i hit the Power-switch, by mistake, it plays for 5 min. then shut off.
In the orig. Firmware, you need to push the button for a few seconds to Power on!
Please help!

No, you can't set this, since it is handled by my bootloader. No configuration supported at that early time.

We could do it in the application, so that it expects the ON key to be pushed for a certain (configurable) amount of time after boot, else it does a clean shutdown again. This will of course only be practical with flashed devices.

I would appreciate that. I often accidentally switch on the unit while it is being carried around - having to push the on-button for, say, half a second would greatly reduce that risk.

Cheers,
