Configurable shutdown period?

Post by mentalinc » Fri Mar 15, 2019 8:41 am

Is it possible to have the shutdown delayed for a user set period i.e. and hour?

Like this:

In short, turn off the ignition, the pi turns the display off but keeps running for an hour and if the ignition isn't turned back on it turns off.
If the ignition is turned on the screen comes on and you're already booted so its an "instant on". great for quick stops like the gas station or popping into the shops.

Thoughts or guidance on how to make this possible?

Sure it is possible. You can either write your own service similar to our for BWS CAR PS (and turn off our), or you can modify current script for shutdown according to your requirements.
