VDK and idle state

I use VDK in my application with blackfin processor 537.


I was thinking of putting the core in idle state that may save some power, when there is not much to do for DSP. I tried this with simple code as follows.


CLI R0 ;


STI R0 ;


And failed. With crash!


I could not think of a best place to do this other than VDK idle thread. Taking care that 'wakeup' is enabled for all the concerned peropherals.


Has anybody tried it already ?
