There is the option to force the FPD to power-down by calling the function XPM_ForcePowerdown. This requires that the requesting PU has proper privileges configured in the PMC. The PMC releases all PM Slaves used by the APU automatically.

Important: This force method is typically not recommended, especially when running complex operating systems on the APU because it could result in loss of data or system corruption, due to the OS not suspending itself gracefully.

For more information about XPM_ForcePowerdown, see OS and Libraries Document Collection (UG643).
