( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Anybody got any programs that will cause a wake-up event when a microphone picks up certain noises?

If it's only certain noises - then doesn't that imply that the system is already running a routine to tell the difference between a target noise & everything else?

Wouldn't this imply a need for out-of-phase hardware rather than simply a program?

Or maybe - just maybe - you could have different configurations for your system - that would power down all of the processes (like WiFi connectivity, power to the screen, power to the hard drive(s), etc.) except the audio processing and bring them all back up when you hear that target noise..

It's not quite the same - though IIRC most hardware with a 'standby' mode still uses up to 60% of the power it draws when it's 'on' - so it could technically fall into that range...



Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
