Can anyone describe Hero 7 Black 'wake states' wrt wifi smart remote

When I turn off a H7B using the smart remote, both the remote and the H7B power off.  I am however obviously able to turn both back on.  So the H7B is not fully powered down and is consuming power.  I'm wondering if there is some timeout to this 'deep sleep' state on the H7B and the camera fully powers down and is there some way to 'immediately' do a complete power down - short of pulling the battery?  And does anyone know what the current drain is at this deep sleep?

Re: Can anyone describe Hero 7 Black 'wake states' wrt wifi smart remote

hi,

 

I do not have remote.

but the same happens when I connect with mobile.

 

initial the gopro camera is off (from long time) app icon are gray - no way to connect

I switch on the camera (wifi is on in thecamera) - after a while the antena gets blue

 

IMG_7703.PNG

 

and after a short time the circle is light blue, antena white - i do not know which is exactly which...but there is

- a bluetooth link for wake up

- a wifi connection ready - not connected yet

I power the camera on taping on it... when i tap the power , camera goes off

 

IMG_7705.jpg

 

but remains the light blue/white icon - as long as this is visible camera can be powered on any time

the wifi is not on, but remains in camera a bluetooth dormand process that listen to an eventually power on from the mobile/remote

bluetooth consumtion is far less that WiFi. therefore is used to wake up the camera.

 

after an unknown time, this will be off - i do not know the delay - hours?

 

to be 100% sure that not a drop of battery is consumed, remove the battery.

 

after seconds, the icon is again gray, meaning bluetooth also is off.

just me,

just a short update:

 

if I do not remove the battery, after more than 20min-30min (maybe sooner), remains only the blue antenna (maybe this is the bluetooth icon)

 

and I can power the camera on, but takes longer than when "light blue + white antenna"
