How is power management handled for modules? The GPS module, for example, could drain the battery if it remains active all the time, and it’s a bit low tech to think I’d have to physically remove the module to prevent that.

Would it be possible to have a programmable interface for power management (or module management in general)? It could even be a community app as long as the low level API is available. Right now it looks like the only interaction I can have with the GPS module is through IPositionProvider, which doesn’t contain any management functions.

Hi jrank,

At the moment we have no immediate plans to do that, however the implementation of power management is an item that is already under discussion. Once we have more information available for you we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

This is something I would be interested in finding out more about. I’ve started to work on a clock/ alarm clock application.

I would want to turn off the screen after a few minutes of inactivity and at the preset time be able to power the bug and module up for use.
