@blubb: Probably yes, but to be honest I don't mind calling another function as long as I get the desired result.

Anyone know when the next API will be released?
I would really like the RF power off functionality.
I am using the ESP8266 in a low power application as the processor and the WiFi is just to set up/ download info. So it is only being used once in a while. 90% of the time nothing is able to connect to it.

So there will be a function that we can disable WiFi communication (i.e. power off the RF section?).
When will the next API be released?

Kind Regards

Daniel

Espressif: thanks for the new force-sleep functions in SDK 1.4! Looks pretty awesome!

Question: if I enable force-sleep (wifi_fpm_open) does that disable automatic sleep? Or is the force-sleep in addition to the automatic sleep managed by the SDK?
