So i have a question i hope you guys can help me...

i have my arduino hook to a lot of stuff :

so i want to implement some power saving here,  by sleeping the arduino and also block power to the LCD and open log..
i think that having and ouput from the arduino to a small relay to power the other electronics i do not know if there is an especial IC that does this ?

any recomendation for small solid state relays,that are surface mount?

thanks

The general pattern is:

1) If the peripheral has an enable input then it may be possible to put it into an ultra-low power mode programmatically - if so do this, its easiest.

2) If not then a p-channel MOSFET or PNP transistor in a high-side switching configuration can be used to power down that device.  In this case you have to ensure all the signals to the device are put either LOW or as INPUTs before powering down.
