QNX RIM has pushed the second update of the QNX-based operating system running on the PlayBook. One of the new features listed? "The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet can now be charged even when fully powered down." Oh my.

But what exactly is brought up when the device is in deep sleep then ? Is it only about keeping the minimal amount of electronic components on so that interrupts work, and wiring some interrupt handlers to the "load the rest of the OS" actions ?


The "whole operating system" (i.e. kernel) is up when the device is sleeping. It just doesn't do anything (i.e. no wifi, graphics, apps), so it won't consume much power either.
