Power button for RetroPi

by RedNight69 on Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:55 am

Is there a way to add a power button to the 005 kit? I've had a few times I shut it down in the night but only way I know to turn it back on is by pulling the power and putting it back in and would like to just avoid that way if possible.

Sure.. this will perform a graceful shutdown when you toggle one of the free GPIO pins:
