Can someone help me with the following....
Unit flashed and powered on, WiFimanager runs and starts AP. Configure AP unit resets, after 60 seconds it connects to an NTP server and sets the time on the ring.
CURRENTLY NTP connects every 60 seconds to poll. (This part I can control no problem)
Led colors are set
Void Loop for clock runs
Now the issue....
I want to do all this and disable the Wi-Fi and NTP then after 20 hours WITHOUT restarting the unit, I want to power on Wi-Fi, connect to configured AP in station mode and poll an updated NTP datapack, then return to sleep for another 20 hours.
My understanding is that DEEPSLEEP will not run the void loop section (which actively controls the clock led's)
I'm trying to run a clock and the ESP8266 & nodeMDU and with a maximum of 15 led's on at a time from a 7.4v 2S LIPO battery for as long as I can.
If I run it from an outlet outs not an issue, but this proof of concept of the project needs to be by battery.
Thanks for any help
