I have a use-case where I would leave my Raspberry Pi powered up but keep it in the halted state by pulling down the RUN pinout. Is this safe to do?
Edit: The answer shows me that I did not state my use-case clearly. What will happen is basically this:
- The Pi will be in the same power-grid as some other PC.
- At the start of the day the whole grid will be powered up.
- At the end of the day the whole grid will be powered down.
- Sometimes I want to use the Pi for this day and sometimes the other PC.
- On the days the Pi is not needed I still have to power up the whole grid (and therefore the Pi). The Pi signals other systems to come up when it boots. Since I don't want the other systems to activate I don't want to boot the Pi at all.
I know this is pretty convoluted and I'd rather split up the power-grid but sadly this is not an option (legacy system).
