Hi!
I have a project in which we are logging data from the movement of old patients using IMU.
I cannot have a battery larger than 1Ah since it will become heavy and big to carry around for the patients.
I need to somehow extend the battery life to 5 days. right now it only works for max 2 days.

One solution that came to my mind and I think could be a good feature on OLA is to sleep and wake at specified times during a day. (using RTC).
For example, I need to log data for 6 hours of the day from 9 AM to 3 PM and the OLA could go to sleep at other times and save battery. This could be a great feature for projects that there is no access to the board to turn it off. Is that easy to implement?

Thanks!
