Is it safe to hold the pi in reset (via run/p5) indefinitely? If so, will it save on power consumption?
I think it is safe. I tested it on my B and A and it seemed to be fine. It didn't seem to save power though.
It will never damage the Pi by holding it in reset mode. It isn't the best idea if you want to save on power consumption.
Required, but never shown
