    Edison doesn't always power on when power applied to VIN

    Cosmo_King

      I have several edison boards in a prototype design which applies 9V DC @500mA to VIN (J17 pin 4).    We're using the Edison Breakout Board.

       

      Generally they are working fine when power is applied to VIN however after some time one of my boards has stopped booting automatically and I have to open the case and press the power button.  Then it boots and functions normally.

       

      Is there some reason this behavior would change (settings getting corrupted)?  Is there a bios setting or pin I can access to ensure that the system ALWAYS powers on when power is applied?  (Similar to the always on after power failure option of most PC BIOS)

       

      Thanks!
