Hey,

I'm trying to achieve low power consumption using i.mx51 EVK, in order to do so I'm compiling a very slim kernel, taking off any unnecessary module / peripheral.

I've heard this is not enough as the peripheral are still consuming power although not being used by the kernel.

If this is so, how can I turn them off to achieve lower power consumption?

 

This community has been very helpful in the past, and I hope you can help me with some input,

thank you very much in advance,
