    ******SCRATCH THAT********Found it myself (opened my eyes!!)found it, yey!void setup( void ){pinMode( retractPin, OUTPUT ) ;pinMode( protractPin, OUTPUT ) ;digitalWrite( retractPin, HIGH ) ;retractState = true ;delay(1500);digitalWrite(retractPin, LOW);digitalWrite( protractPin, LOW ) ;protractState = false ;pinMode( bluePin, OUTPUT ) ;digitalWrite( bluePin, RGB_OFF ) ;pinMode( redPin, OUTPUT ) ;digitalWrite( redPin, RGB_OFF ) ;Serial.begin( 9600 ) ;delay( 300 ) ;

    Hi, I have modified this slightly; once actuators have protracted/retracted they are switched low after 1.5 seconds to avoid over heating. It works well but I'm unable to do this for the start up behaviour. So when I reset/turn on my arduino, the actuator retracts, but I can't get it to switch low after a few seconds. The only way I can do this is by locking/unlocking which kicks in my modification and switches them low after 1.5 seconds. I am a total novice really so any help would be very very much appreciated! Thank you. PS here is my mod// LOCKvoid protractActuator( void ){ if ( retractState ) { digitalWrite( retractPin, LOW ) ; retractState = false ; } delay( 50 ) ; digitalWrite( protractPin, HIGH ) ; delay(1500); digitalWrite( protractPin, LOW ); protractState = true...
