    In the end, without support for a sleep mode, I was pushed to deal with maintaining continuity between dives while turning the unit off and on, on the surface. After that, doing the extra little bit to allow power cycling underwater was not difficult. Now that I've done the latter, too, I have to say being able to turn unit off underwater *has* been useful at a few points when testing prototypes.

    I see.... thanks.

    I added Bluetooth to the ACME controller. The controller logs among other things the pressures in the individual tissue compartments during the dive.

    Just for fun, here is one dive profile logged by the ACME on a recent trip:

    Here's battery voltage from the same dive. Not too exciting, but that's a good thing.
