Recently the effect of a quiescent phase (or dormant/resting phase in applications) on the dynamics of a system of differential equations has been investigated, in particular with respect to stability properties of stationary points. It has been shown that there is a general phenomenon of stabilization against oscillations which can be cast in rigorous form. Here we investigate, for homogeneous systems, the effect of a quiescent phase, and more generally, a phase with slower dynamics. We show that each exponential solution of the original system produces two exponential solutions of the extended system whereby the stability properties can be controlled.
