OctoberY2k15 sleep bug (passing from end of month threshold to new month start) #653
Observed: Customer reported that Photons that were sleeping during the boundary between September 30 2015 and October 1 2015 did not wake from sleep. (This did not affect Cores).
Expected: Photons should be able to cross any date threshold and continue to sleep and wake from sleep as expected.
Workaround: a simple 'reset' of the device should resurrect a sleeping Photon, and will continue functioning until an upcoming month-end threshold. (Fix for this will be coming asap)
Customer's test to confirm the issue: I just took a unit and set the rtc to 09-30 23:53 then with a loop of reporting and sleeping for 60 seconds. It stopped reporting at 09-30 23:59. So I think that confirms it. When the device awakens the internal led flashes white for a short duration none of that after 23:59
