Shutdown process

I have not seen this posted before so figured I should note this issue.

A couple times lately when I shutdown by pressing the power button I get the SHUTDOWN message on the display but it just hangs there.  Eventually it goes away and the radio comes back on with the FLEX-6700 on the display.  If I then press the power button again it does not shutdown at all and I have to press it again and then it shuts down quickly.

    Thanks. Similar but different. When my display says SHUTDOWN it hangs there for a long time then cycles back to an operational mode. This only happened two times.

    I am also getting similar results but not all the time. I am wondering if this abnormal shutdown then leads to a high noise floor on  the next power up.

    Mark, How often are you seeing a high noise floor, I'm seeing high noise floors on different bands at random. One I reset or jump around different bands I will disappear. Just can't rap my head around the problem yet.

    We will have a fix for the high noise floor issue in the next release of SmartSDR.
