Title: ACTIVATING AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE
Abstract:
An electronic device comprising: a processor having a motion activation mode and an operating mode; an orientation sensor operable to detect the orientation of the device, and a clock configured to, when the processor is in the motion activation mode, periodically power-up the processor; wherein the processor is configured to, when powered-up in its motion activation mode, obtain a measurement of the orientation of the device from the orientation sensor; store the obtained measurement; and process the obtained measurement in dependence on one or more stored measurements of the orientation of the device so as to determine whether the obtained measurement and the one or more stored measurements are indicative of a predetermined sequence of orientations of the device; the processor being configured to transition from its motion activation mode to its operating mode in response to determining that the obtained measurement and the one or more stored measurements are indicative of the predetermined sequence of orientations of the device.
