Hello, and to answer the questions in the "read first",
SN 115110116919 Mfr 8-13-2015, Rev 2.2/R4
Android 5.0.1 on a SGS4 and other device runs W7 Home premium
2004 Ford Ranger FX4 Level II USA
4.0L V6 gas
FORScan Lite V1.2.1 (Android) and FORScan V2.3.1 beta for Windows
In the course to trying to address the ISO bus concern in my other thread, and because in part I purchased the MX unit for the sleep mode, I've been watching the sleep performance and times very carefully. So between last night to this morning, 14 hours later and the time beginning after testing the unit with a drive and Torque Pro running, it was noticed that the power LED was on and the BT light was slowly flashing. I then read the thread "OBDLink MX Drainned Car Battery " and got the picture.
So with this information, I reset the MX (aka, unit) to factory setting, unplugged it for 30 min, plugged it back in, did NOT pair nor touch the pair/reset button, and noticed that it went to sleep in nearly 10 min flat. So....I unplugged the unit again, plugged it back in and did another factory reset (reset button not touched). And again, it went to sleep in nearly 10 min flat. Next, the unit unplugged/plugged back in and was paired with the SGS4 phone, and NOT tested with any apps. And again, the unit powers down in 10 minutes.
So with this in mind, the MX being theoretically set at factory default and merely being paired to an Android phone, why is it powering down/sleep after 10 min? Because, I recall reading that it should be 2 hours. Not that I don't mind the 10 minutes, but it bugs me not knowing why it's not at the default 2 hrs, and this in light of the ISO bus concern. Just trying to be very methodical in the analysis is all.
Thanks in advance!
