2.1.3. Wait for interrupt control

To enter SLEEP mode the CPU must enter the Wait-for-interrupt state using register 7 in CP15 of the CPU system control coprocessor. This ensures that the CPU is in a low-power state. You must also use Wait-for-interrupt whenever short pauses occur in processing requirements (the system mode control state machine can remain in the same state).
