FreeRTOS always turned on: any problems?

Posted by Nobody/Anonymous on June 12, 2006
Hi. Are there any problems to leave always turned on the FreeRTOS? For example: tick counter overflow?

Most systems will just roll the counter - xTickCount.

take a look in tasks.c in vTaskIncrementTick()
on how this is handled.

your application can suspend or stop the scheduler any time it wants.
