MM Nightly Reboot Needed, PM2 ?



  • I have a finicky wireless here and need MM to reboot nightly to stay connected, otherwise MM loses the connection and never reconnects.
    Can anyone help me set up a scheduled reboot script for my RPI? I have PM2 installed and running for auto-start but I dont see where it can reboot my RPI.

    Many thanks.

    Have you done this?

    Disable WiFi Power Save

    Edit /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf

    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf
    Add the following lines

    Disable power saving

    options 8192cu rtw_power_mgnt=0 rtw_enusbss=1 rtw_ips_mode=1
    For Raspberry Pi 3
    Edit /etc/network/interfaces

    sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
    Add the following line under the wlan0 section

    wireless-power off
    Reboot your PI

    sudo reboot

    That comes straight from here:

  • @Mykle1 I did but since i didnt have the Edit /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf file, I’m running an rPI3b so I did the wireless-power off step bu it didnt seem to help or the problem is outside the raspberry.

    I just found how to do a nightly reboot using crontab.

    I just found how to do a nightly reboot using crontab.

    That worked for me and I have Pi3 b as well. Glad you found the script you were looking for. Good luck!



  • @Mykle1 curious, did you have the /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf file already or did you create it? i just created it, just in case that does the trick too.

    thanks again.

    thanks again.

    As it turns out, I do NOT have the 8192cu.conf file are all.
    pi@Pi3:/etc/modprobe.d $ ls
    fbdev-blacklist.conf ipv6.conf libpisock9.conf raspi-blacklist.conf
    pi@Pi3:/etc/modprobe.d $
    `
    However, looking at the instructions again, it says:

    For Raspberry Pi 3
    Edit /etc/network/interfaces

    sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
    Add the following line under the wlan0 section

    wireless-power off
    Reboot your PI

    sudo reboot

    It’s been some time since I set up my Pi but it’s obvious that I only did this portion of the instruction

    I was curious so I checked my /etc/network/interfaces file. It would appear I don’t have the edit we’re talking about, yet my wifi never drops. Here is the file:

    interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)

    Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd

    For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and ‘man dhcpcd.conf’

    Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d:

    source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    auto wlan0
    allow-hotplug wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    wireless-essid XE1S3
    wireless-key 5BBXXXXXX
