FreeRTOS Timer Ticks

Posted by jdabbs003 on July 22, 2009
Is it correct to say that while the pxDelayedTaskList is empty, then FreeRTOS has no use for timer ticks?

I need to patch in a callback to tell the application when FreeRTOS doesn't care about timer ticks. My problem is that I need to know when I can put the system in static SLEEP mode which will stop the timer.

That is an interesting question, and I think you are probably correct, provided no other tasks use the tick count through calls to xTaskGetTickCount().
