Re: Controlling LAN LEDs individually

Yep it works. I saw a new commit at github though dated February 2017 (https://github.com/dradermacher/lan951x-led-ctl) downloaded and compiled it but could not get it to work

Re: Pi 3 in shutdown state draws 220mA

my Pi3 draws ~100mA after shutdown.,140mA with hdmi2vga converter attached and it was always like that. Did apt-get update/upgrade yesterday. On all previous models it drops to a bare minimal, but with the Pi 3 it remains almost the same as when it is up and running. In fact all models are like tha...

Re: Pi 3 in shutdown state draws 220mA

thanks for taking all the trouble. i only have a hifiberry digi+ s/pdif interface connected. nothing else. and neither the rpi2 nor the 3 shut down as rpi2 did prior to the latest image.

Re: Pi 3 in shutdown state draws 220mA

I'm not questioning the general power consumption, it's the shutdown state consumption I'm highlighting. On all previous models it drops to a bare minimal, but with the Pi 3 it remains almost the same as when it is up and running. I'm wondering why this is? a design choice? a deisgn compromise? a d...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Status LEDs

I didn't notice this until now, but the Pi 3 draws ~220mA after it's shutdown :shock:[/quote]

why is this so and is there a way to bring this back to rpi2 level?

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Status LEDs

i use the well-regarded mi powerbank (http://www.mi.com/en/pb16000/#overall) which has blinking leds when power is drawn from it. when i shutdown the rpi2, its lights went off. if i am not mistaken, you are suggesting that there was still some power draw but it was below mi's detection threshold the...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Status LEDs

thanks scotty101. this is what i am doing at present. i was only inquiring, like some others in this thread, how to completely shut down the device with no power draw. i have used older rpis for a long time and never encountered any issues

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Status LEDs

i have the rpi3 powered by a powerbank, the always-on green led means the rpi keeps drawing power even after shutdown and drains the battery more quickly. this was not the case with the rpi2. is there a way to shutdown the device properly with no leds on like the good old rpi2?
