Post How long does the program run on the Cortex?
I just had a quick question about downloading and running a program from RobotC on the VEX Cortex. My question after a program is download and run, how long does that program run on the Cortex? What I mean is will moving the power button to off erase the running program or does it run until the power is removed? Thanks.

It stays in the memory on the Cortex; meaning, it will be on there until you overwrite it with another program, assuming it gets downloaded properly. Something to keep in mind, too, is that program will start every time you turn on the Cortex; so if you have the robot moving forward, for instance, every time you turn the Cortex on the robot will try to run forward (again, until you put another program on it).

So fix it, maybe?
