I figured this was the best place to post this question.
I am developing a project at the minute which will require the prototype to be in use for about a month straight, without anyone touching it again. I was initally thinking of sending the data received by the prototype over a wifi connection, but now I am thinking it may be better to store it on an SD card. But this presents its own problems. Mainly powering the Uno board and a datalogging shield for that period of time (obviously).
So, I was thinking of putting it into sleep mode. However, the Arduino website seesm to say that sleep mode is not ideal.
If I was to put the prototype into sleep, what sort of issues could come up? Or, should I stay away from the sleep mode altogether?
As far as power goes, I was looking at the 6 x AAs battery pack, but if anyone has any other suggestions, I would be glad to hear them, I am still not 100% how long this would last considering the amount of time the prototype could be used is random.
Thanks in advance.
