I have hooked up a new miniZed board (first day) and am trying to pick myself up by the bootstraps and get it running. I have USB cables connected to J2 & J6 and a blank thumb drive in J1. I can talk to the console with Putty and run a sub-set of the Linux commands. I got the i2csensor app to run and display data that looked reasonable.
But now it has shut down (gone dark) by itself three times. It only does this when I am away from my desk or not looking, so I don't know if there are mitigating circumstances. It can happen anywhere from seconds to minutes after I enter a command.
I can't find anything in the documentation (HW User'Guide, Getting Started Guide, Quickstart Guide) to explain this. Is there an undocumented feature or could I just have a defective board?
