That method is good and I might try it. But as it says in the instructions, it only powers off the Pi.nufan wrote: ↑ Has anyone who has done the Raspberry Pi mod been able to utilize the existing power button to turn on and off the Raspberry Pi and display? Or any other solution? The challenge is the Pi should be shut down "gently" rather than just a hard power cut. Wondering how I'm going to manage that.
EDIT: Think I found my own answer here.
Anything else connected to the power bar will still be on (i.e. monitor in sleep mode, speakers/amp, etc).
Some people will get around this by using a Wfi plug or Google home type device to power everything off.
For a previous mini arcade build I used an Iot relay so once the Pi powers off, everything else plugged in will shut off. You would need a shutdown circuit.
Here is a very good guide that can help. (It was also posted by someone else in this thread previously).
Another option might be a master switch on the outside of the case such as this one linked here.
