From what I learned here in the community, when the engine is off, the autoPI normally wakes only around 5 minutes every hour to prevent battery drain.
I’d like to have more time to work remotely on my autopi DYI, but I would like to keep settings the way they are (so that I don’t drain my car battery if I forget changing the configuration back to normal).
I already made some preparations to that the autopi is accessible from remote (via an openvpn connection - I can share details if anyone is interested), but I don’t know how to make the device wake up when I need to access it.
Do you have any suggestion on how I can implement a “Power sleep temporary block” ?
My use case is:
- I log-in remotely
- I send a “power-sleep-temporary-override command” somehow
- normal sleep behavior is temporarily changed, so that the autopi stays alive e.g. for 2 hours
- everything gets back to normal after 2 hours
Thanks in advance for any hints you could share.
