Caliper firmware which actually goes to sleep

A project log for Silly hardware wishlist

Too simple for a project page & which may never happen.

The lion kingdom has worked around Chinese calipers with a flaky switch for 10 years, but ideally the microprocessor would just go to sleep properly.  The switch usually glitches off & it has to be zeroed every time it's turned on.  It would require replacing the entire board, at least $50 for a gold clad board.  The calipers were only $10, in the money of the time.
