A useful demo to have for sponsor 8 would be to patch Orbot to interact with the upcoming Tor "sleep/snooze/hibernate" interface.

This depends upon the roadmap task called "Finalize controller interface for idleness".

Proposal 286 was an earlier version of this idea, but in my opinion, we ought to shrink it down.

Probably what we need is as simple as an extra option or two, sort of like DisableNetwork, to temporarily disable other pieces of functionality that use CPU or network resources. Possibly, we need a command to stop or start building predicted circuits -- unless we can already do that with one of our current options.

This should be using the new dormant mode rather than DisableNetwork. See Nick's email here: https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-dev/2018-December/013588.html

Resolution: wontfix
Status: assignedclosed

Since the scope changed here, we can't upstream the old code; this particular item is wontfix. We can have a new ticket for supporting the dormant mode.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
