I have a basic circuit, with just an LED and a switch between the ground and the RST pin.
When I press the button, the LED glows lightly but RST is not triggered.
Of course if I remove the LED, the ESP will reboot after the switch push.
What I am missing here?
My schematics, but I don't know how to represent the RST pin that is always at 3.3V and should be triggered down to the ground:
Overall context: I want to be able to discern a reset triggered out of the deep sleep mode (i.e. pin16 acting as a switch) from a reset triggered manually (with my user switch). To achieve that, my solution is to connect the switch to a gpio and the rst, then to "isolate" the rst from the gpio with a diode (so that rst pin will not change gpio state when triggered from elsewhere).
