See #1447


Call PWR_WakeUpPinCmd(DISABLE); on boot to allow normal WKP/A7 pin operation.

Steps to Test


Example App

static system_tick_t last = 0;

void setup() {
    pinMode(A7, OUTPUT);

void loop() {
    if (Serial.available() > 0) {
        System.sleep(SLEEP_MODE_DEEP, 30);

    if (millis() - last > 1000) {
        digitalWrite(A7, !digitalRead(A7));
        last = millis();
  1. Connect WKP to D7
  2. Run the app, D7 should be blinking at 1Hz
  3. Connect via serial to the device, send any character
  4. The device should go into deep sleep for 30 seconds
  5. After waking up it should continue blinking D7 at 1Hz
