Pre order question—

With a normal ESP8266 you can send it into deep sleep when you connected the required pins and send the appropriate coding

Can either the 1st version or the 2nd generation WiFi IR Blaster - ESP8266 board allow deep sleep? It appears the required the pins are not brought to the pin outs..

Can anyone tell me if the board can do deep sleep even if it requires small wire soldering to the ESP itself ?
