Soft Shut Down for Controller

Does anyone know if the new update includes a soft shut down or is there one in the works?

If you click the fly-out menu, there’s a blue button at the bottom. Tap this, and you can shutdown or reboot.

Ok thanks, now I will work on using an iPad to control

I’m not sure if Greg is asking about “soft shut down” as in having the machine literally power down on shutdown. I’m assuming this isn’t possible given that the switch on the controller is a physical switch instead of a push button switch like you would find on most PCs these days.

It would have to do with how the raspberry pi is powered. A normal pi can be shut down through the OS but to power it back up unless you have a switch in line with the power source you have to physically unplug and plug it back in. So we are left with the physical switch.
