When I dump a new program in the AVR, the MOSFETS at the pins stay hi, because the pins go in hi-Z. What I see is the datadump on the LEDs. (because I use ISP pins/MOSFET gates)
What can be done about this?
I think some resistors from the gate to GND? But what value?

Thanks.

100K Ohm resistors will work nicely.

Yes, 100K would be good. Probably anything down to 1K would also be OK. Very non-critical.

You do need to bare in mind the voltage divider affect of a pull down if you have a resistor in series with the drive pin.

Keep it simple it will not bite as hard
