Dear NXP,

I got observation when I try to send  suspend-to-ram command ( echo mem > /sys/power/state ) from Android and Linux

Suspend to Ram in Android OS,

      L4.14.98

      # echo mem > /sys/power/state

   

      Application Processor going to suspend and resumed automatically

Suspend to Ram in Linux OS,

      L4.14.78 & L4.14.98

      # echo mem > /sys/power/state

      Application Processor going to suspend and wait for user press power key

Will you please give me the configuration or implementation to achieve the Linux level in Android ?

Thanks & Regards,

VinothS,

Finally I found wake-up API from power driver and disable it for disabling the auto wakeup.

Hi Sebimohan Mathew

I never tried with GPIO. But, some default wake-up already present.

Wake up done by following,

  1. A53 debug UART
  2. Power Key

  • WAKE-UP

    1. BUTTON

         By pressing the power-key SW3 (0.5s)

     2. DEBUG UART

         Enable debug UART wake-up

         # cat ./sys/devices/platform/5a060000.serial/tty/ttyLP0/power/wakeup
         disabled

         # echo enabled  > ./sys/devices/platform/5a060000.serial/tty/ttyLP0/power/wakeup

         TO WAKEUP

                  Press the ENTER Key 2 times

Hi igorpadykov

=> power 1 2

I tried Power control from car MCU console

is working, But, Sometimes the system wakes up by itself.

Power control from car MCU consolePower control from car2 AP consoleComment
suspendpower 1 2echo "1 2" > /sys/devices/ platform/vehicle-dummy/ power_reqThe system disconnects from BT, waits for all tasks to be done, and then enter suspend mode. Press the power-on key to wake up the system. BT is connected again. Sometimes the system wakes up by itself.

Is there any possible to disable system wake up ?

Thanks & Regards,

Hi igorpadykov

I validate the Linux L4.14.98 in imx8qm Mek board. There is no auto wake-up.

I compared the Linux pm driver source  with Android 9 automotive (L4.14.98) look like both are same.

Why android and Linux behaving differently when I write the power sate "echo mem > /sys/power/state " ?

Thanks & Regards,
