The commands may be mandatory for switching the chip on or off, but
what is better if there is a problem with sending them (e.g. a buggy
UART driver):

1. wait a reasonable time, report an error
2. wait forever

?

If the single byte command couldn't be sent after a few milliseconds,
it likely never will, waiting forever doesn't fix that. An error
report at least provides some information about the problem and the
driver is in a not-hanging state.

Cheers

Matthias
