Why is IO wizard isn't available for entering to wait mode or stop mode?

Latest Updated:09/04/2009

Question:

On IO Wizard, there isn't any available setting for entering to wait mode or stop mode. Why ?

Answer:

The output files of IO Wizard are meant for illustration of source code program sample and also the peripheral initialization setting. In MCU application, entering to wait mode or stop mode won't be done at beginning of program. Therefore, IO Wizard does not support setting for wait mode or stop mode.

Scenario for wait mode and stop mode : Upon MCU reset, the program will do necessary system/machine initialization and set-up, after the program has carried out some process and came to a state whereby MCU is idling, then it is times to save power consumption by entering into wait mode or stop mode.
