Thanks! That makes sense, and that will work just fine for what I need.

I looked at the schematic when I began this project, and frankly I can't parse it at all. Are there good resources for someone to learn how to read that?

Thanks,

Hey all,

I am brand-new to the world of Arduino. I just hooked up my LilyPad Simple board, and I have a question.

When I change the on-board switch to "Off", the power LED goes off, but my sketch continues to run (I'm using the Blink example, with a different output pin).

What's the point of the On/Off switch if it doesn't actually stop execution/power draw? Is there a way I can turn off the LilyPad when I'm not using it, or do I need to sew on my own power switch?

Thanks!

Johnnemann
