Shutdown & boot in 30 seconds, why 30 seconds?


#1

Hi,
I wondered what’s the point with the “Shutdown & boot in 30 seconds” instead of the normal “Reboot” (besides the obvious 30 seconds!) , thanks

I’m guess you told about this

%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5

“Shutdown & boot in 30s” - in this case RTC alarm programmed for wake up +30s from current time. So motherboard poweroff as usual and then after 30s wake up by RTC alarm.

Yes, I understand but why would you want to wait 30 sec. for a reboot? Getting lower GPU temperature?


#4

Some shitty motherboard can’t properly reset hardware until poweroff. It’s for this case

Ok thanks for the info.

Is it possible to add checkbox or radio to watchdog settings to switch restart onto shutdown and boot?
