I have a project which needs to sleep most of the time, and when a button gets pressed, it does its thing which is producing a fading sound wave (using interrupts) until it's time to sleep again.

The goal is to reduce work load on the battery so the item can last as long as possible.

#include <avr/sleep.h>
void setup(){
  /*givePin! This is the pin that will spark the waking up!*/
  /*changes to timers registers*/
void loop(){
  ampCurrentlyOn = digitalRead(givePin);
  ampPulse =  (ampCurrentlyOn && !ampPreviouslyOn) * 255     //Reset 
           + !(ampCurrentlyOn && !ampPreviouslyOn) * ampPulse//Same
           -   bool(ampPulse);  //Decay
  ampPreviouslyOn = ampCurrentlyOn;
  if(!ampPulse){//Once that value reaches 0 time to GOTO bed;
    /*This! Is this what I need to do?*/

Am I doing in the right direction? Could any pin work? How do I get the chip to understand a pin set to digital HIGH to wake up from nap time?

Thank you!

    you search for something like attachInterrupt(digitalPinToInterrupt(givePin), [](){}, FALLING);? givePin must be pin capable of external interrupt.(pin 2 or 3 on Uno/Nano) ([](){} is empty anonymous function) – Juraj Aug 30 '20 at 14:58

    You shouldn't call cli before sleep, or it will never wake up. I also think you need to call sleep_enable();. – Gerben Aug 30 '20 at 18:26

    @Gerben: sleep_mode() takes care of calling sleep_enable(). – Edgar Bonet Aug 31 '20 at 18:11
