Possible Shield Requirements Analysis

RE: Possible Shield Requirements Analysis
Here is a logical diagram, and a rough circuit schematic I worked on yesterday. I am really stuck on the idea of having "3 modes" a semiconscious mode operated by what I am calling for now the "brain stem" is in sleep mode (woken by interrupt of a sensor), a conscious mode operated by the brain stem fully active, and a active mode where a Arduino Leonardo etc etc can take over "higher level" functions.

The brainstem would monitor power and one or two basic sensors, maybe vibration and sound or light. This can then "wake up" the rest of the "brain" the Leonardo for instance using a combination of mosfets and interrupts on the Leonardo.

Theoretically you could keep a shellmo powered on for days and only a few moments where user interaction really "wakes" it up will power be used in great quantities.

I just think that if your going to make it look like its kinda "alive" it needs to act that way....
