No, I was trying to say that I would be ok with powering down the chip.

Not sure if that would work. It might end up waking the chip when a
sysfs attribute is accessed. It might be worth a try, though.

It might also be possible to utilize userspace runtime attributes,
like setting runtime_enabled and setting the idle time before the sensor
shuts down. It would probably be necessary to implement not only
activating the sensor, though - we would also need to to ensure that
the first reading after activation waits until the first read is
complete.
