How to Poweroff BPI-W2 "Normally"

It seems there is no way to poweroff the hardware “normally”
Even I use poweroff cmd, the hardware LEDs are still on. If I force to plug out the power supply, filesystem will be broken and some data may be lost. PWR button doesn’t work.

So, How to Poweroff BPI-W2 “Normally”

Hello, What image did you use? and could you provide me log?

it seems doesn’t real poweroff, I will do a test.


Sorry, I don’t have any UART to USB connector. So I will ask my friend to help me for the serial log He meet the same problem

BPI-W2_poweroff_log.txt (122.2 KB)

attachment the log from serial thanks Jalen

Ok, I’ll check out soon.

before poweroff 340 mA

after poweroff 300 mA

sata-, usb-, gpio-power are not turned off


hw rev v1.0

By pressing the pwr button for about 3-5 sec the bpi-w2 switches off.

Current consumption <10mA

rebooting is only possible with interruption of the power supply.

a schematic would help

yes, w2 can not power off really。this is a big bug

I confirm the problem with power off. Could you please check it?

The problem exists. Power off gracefully available only with uart debugger. You should remove power cord after system reached target "poweroff’. Or else you will have problem with fs. Every time after power loss fs corrupted and mounts with read only options.
