Does device NO 2 have another node in which it can reach the coordinator or another node with? If not, then you need to have more than one path for data to flow to keep this from occurring.

right now device no 2 does not have another node to reach the coordinator , so till I replace the device no 1, will the device no 2 will follow the last Sleep period and sleep time settings got from coordinator or it will be wakeup forever till I replace the device no 1? and please confirm what device role should be set in both coordinator and end device
