    safe shutdown schedule

    by gnomalab » Sun Feb 19, 2017 5:47 pm

    Possibility to program a safe shutdown from madmapper or a script. This would be very useful for fixed installations. I am not sure how it affects the hot off on the Raspberripi.

    Hi,

    Actually you can shutdown the miniMAD via the Q key of your usb keyboard.

    Yes of course. But it is necessary that a click to click. I mean scheduling a power-on schedule (from the same madmapper?) Or with an additional script for shutdown. So an operator is not required to do the task.

    Is it dangerous for the miniMAD to switch off the power supply directly ?
    i've try many times, i never had problems

    normally it is ok, never had problems,
    but you never know. we put the system on a read only partition to avoid this problem
    as much as we can, but data corruption CAN happen eventually during hot unplug.
