I have thoroughly searched for answers on this over the past couple weeks, and have not been able to find a solution for Arduino.

I'm using an ESP32-S2-Saola-1M Dev board that needs to store a sensor reading in RTC memory, go to sleep for 5 min, and then wake up again and store another reading. Every few hours, it shares its data and starts over.

The issue I'm having is that about 2/3 of the devices I have will randomly wakeup with a POWERON event instead of from the timer, and all of the RTC memory is lost. From searching online, this seems to be a hardware issue that causes the brownout detector to trigger incorrectly.

The accepted solution in the esp-idf is turning off the brownout detector , but this doesn't seem to be implemented in the ESP32 Arduino core, and using code I've found for turning off the brownout detector in Arduino causes constant brownouts rather than turning the detector off.

There seem to be solutions if I switch my development environment, but I'd rather not do that at this point in development. Has anyone had luck fixing this issue in Arduino?
