Raspberry Pi4 shutdown time

  • Hello


    Before I spend time trying, could anybody who has LibreELEC running on a Pi 4 (any memory size) tell me the shut-down time for it ? I need something that shuts down much faster than Raspian and was advised to see if LibreELEC might be suitable.


    Many thanks in advance

    Changed the title of the thread from “Raspberry Pi power down time” to “Raspberry Pi4 shutdown time”.
  • Well my pi3 shuts down within a couple of seconds using libreelec.

    So I would assume the pi4 to be the same or a little faster

    Thanks. I have to provide battery power during the power down so obviously less is better. That's certainly a lot less than Raspian anyway.

  • To be honest my raspian install doesn't take long to shutdown either.

    I have a smart mirror running magic mirror software and alexa on a raspberry pi2.

    This all runs on raspian stretch and if I do a shutdown on this I get the little white raspian box saying stopping services etc then it all shuts down, probably 5 seconds max.

    Maybe you have a slow sd card or are maybe wanting things instant.

    Cheers
