PI3A+ high current draw after shutdown

Tue Dec 04, 2018 8:35 pm

My pi3a+ shows a strange behavior after shutdown: current draw rises after shutdown (halt -p) from 200mA (idle) to almost 600mA.

The last time I have seen this was with a FriendlyArm Nanopi-Duo, but this was dependent on the distribution/kernel.

Normal behavior of rpi is that current draw will drop to about 100mA (plus USB-consumers, since Raspbian does not seem to shut down the usb-bus at shutdown).

Can this be fixed?
