B.B.B. turn off automatically

Hi
My BeagleBone turn off automatically after 5 or 6 hours, whats the problem?
Do you have any idea?
Thanks

Could be old software. Some earlier versions of Debian did that.
What version software are you using?

Could be a weak power supply.
Is your power supply good enough to power the peak currents for the BeagleBone at all times?

Are you using a PocketBeagle, and not a BeagleBone?
The PocketBeagles do that, if powered from the external power input.

Are you running on an external 5 volt power supply and not just the USB cable to your P.C.?

Type in the following two commands:

cat /etc/dogtag

uname -a

I useing debian V9.5 and nodJS V10
I useing 5V 3A power supply, I thing is enough to power the peak currents

root@roxanne:/srv# cat /etc/dogtag
BeagleBoard.org Debian Image 2018-10-07

root@roxanne:/srv# uname -a
Linux roxanne 4.14.71-ti-r80 #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Oct 5 23:50:11 UTC 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux

I am not saying this is the problem but have you considered upgrading to the current image?

It sure sounds like either a temperature or supply issue. My Beaglebone is happy with only a 5V 2Amp supply.

If you touch the chips on the board after its been on for several hours are they getting hot?

I have used well over 200 bones
Once and a while there is one bone that just fails to keep running
I toss it in the "for testing only" bin and use another one

some bones just fail

evilwulfie,

You obviously have more experience in this area then I.

I will back off from this topic.
