Thanks yes for sure its getting stuck on the restart...… don't know why.
what if I try the reboot in the middle of the day when shooting is active? Rather than at night time when its inactive? I don't mind losing 1 shot during the day.
The problem appears to be in this part of the script:function camera_reboot() activate_display(90) switch_mode(PLAYBACK Is there supposed to be a close bracket at the end of the word playback?I noticed in another thread they were trying to exit/enter playback mode with another couple of lines, something like:click("shoot_half") exit_alt(0)Would that be at all useful?

On autostart the script ran, counted down from 5 to 1 then the camera went blank.
I then could not get back into the menu, because every time I pressed the play (alt) button, the script kept running again. Menu button did not seem to do anything nor any of the other buttons.
The ultimate lua runs when I press the play button, after reboot and autostart fails. It is not restarting without the play button being pressed.
I'm not sure the CHDK hack is something that's robust enough for professional remote field deployment. Each time we go to a site it costs us about $4000 dollars (just to get there and come back again) so we have to be confident the data is there.
Edit: Play is also the alt key (I think) on this camera, that's why I was pressing it to bring up the chdk menu. Anyway I'm too old wrong generation for this I'm sure a 10 year old could figure it out in 5min. I might have to stick to ecology and growing plants.
Ixus 185 us cheapest canon point and shoot ($130) if I have to go up model better to just by a Fujifilm waterproof xp140 ($230) has 999 interval inbuilt shot intervalometer (and USB power inbuilt).
