Selectable sleep or deep-sleep

    The phrase deep sleep was introduced by Minix.
    Sleep and deep sleep are technical names for the state an uProcessor can use to reduce power consumption (and commonly used by embedded system programmers).
    A more user friendly name for both states would be nice I think.

    So, Is the A2 AirMouse going to be possible to "turn on" againg the Minix Neo x8-H from the sleep in the future?

    Any response to this Minix? If people mount it to the back of their TV or in a cabinet where there is no IR line of sight, then the only way to turn it on is by manually pushing the on button. Surely the A2 flagship remote should be able to turn it on? Should it not?

    Please give us the option of NO deep sleep. If I want to save some power I'll turn it off.

    Surely Minix can please all users by enabling the power state on each USB port (on sleep) to be selectable through the setup menu in the interface?

    Another thought ... ditch the built-in IR receiver and build in a dedicated RF receiver (non-usb) into all new Minix devices. This won't help existing users, but at least it will be more useful moving forward ... IR is old technology requiring line-of-sight ... time to move forward.

    And include an M1 style remote
    Not sure the harmony users will be happy but I would prefer an rf remote too.

    i prefer only power on - or off. save energy, save your money, because as all
    of such things we have around in our households who are alive on standby :p
    it's a huge waste (counted within a year).

    keep my 5 cents :cool:
