 This tutorial will cover using a breadboard power module (DC), as well as Oak power conservation via a sleep function. There are more ways to conserve Oak power including cutting out the onboard LED power, but those are beyond the scope of this example. This tutorial will cover using a breadboard power module (DC), as well as Oak power conservation via a sleep function.

-The ESP8266 chip that is the heart of the Oak has the ability to put your device into a sleep mode to conserve power by way of 4 different Deep Sleep modes: WAKE_RF_DEFAULT,​ WAKE_RFCAL, WAKE_NO_RFCAL,​ and WAKE_RF_DISABLED. This tutorial will explore the basics of WAKE_RF_DEFAULT,​ which relies on the internal Oak timer (which remains active while in Deep Sleep) to wake the device automatically+The ESP8266 chip that is the heart of the Oak has the ability to put your device into a sleep mode to conserve power by way of 4 different Deep Sleep modes: WAKE_RF_DEFAULT,​ WAKE_RFCAL, WAKE_NO_RFCAL,​ and WAKE_RF_DISABLED.

 In order to recover from ANY Deep Sleep mode you MUST jumper the Reset pin and the Wake pin, otherwise the Oak can't trigger itself to wake up. If you fail to connect these two pins, the only option you have to wake the device is to manually enter Config Mode. In this tutorial, the Reset and Wake pins are connected via a yellow jumper wire In order to recover from ANY Deep Sleep mode you MUST jumper the Reset pin and the Wake pin, otherwise the Oak can't trigger itself to wake up.
