 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

this is the program uploaded
after uploading, the current was measured at ~24ma using a meter and 4- AA batteries which was a circuit used often
to read current without prior problems or error messages.
Then, the blink program was uploaded and the error message appeared: avrdude:stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

PROGRAM:

#include <avr/sleep.h>

/* Sleep Demo Serial
 * -----------------
 * Example code to demonstrate the sleep functions in an Arduino.
 *
 * use a resistor between RX and pin2. By default RX is pulled up to 5V
 * therefore, we can use a sequence of Serial data forcing RX to 0, what
 * will make pin2 go LOW activating INT0 external interrupt, bringing
 * the MCU back to life
 *
 * there is also a time counter that will put the MCU to sleep after 10 secs
 *
 * NOTE: when coming back from POWER-DOWN mode, it takes a bit
 *       until the system is functional at 100%!! (typically <1sec)

Code:
      delay(100);     // this delay is needed, the sleep
                      //function will provoke a Serial error otherwise!!
This band-aid is needed only if you don't flush the outgoing buffer, and wait for the last character to shift out.
