Push button on/off switch
#7
Which-ever port(s) you decide to attach to physically, it is important that you have BOTH a power-on button and a reset button. Here is why, glad you asked ...

... if you press the power button two quickly, the system will suspend and go to sleep, from which there is no recovery except to press the reset button. Sometimes the system on re-power will get an sdram initialize error from which there is no recovery except to press the reset button. If you press the power button ( to power on ) and you press it too quickly, it will never power on, the recovery of which is to press the reset button.

To power on you must press and HOLD the power button until the red light comes on and then continue to hold it for another half second or so... this only works if the battery is connected and substantially charged. Here is the kicker... if when you let go of the power button on startup there is contact bounce ( often very normal ) the system will again shutdown (suspend) the recovery of which is only the (you guessed it) reset button.

The system cannot be powered on at this time with the remote (it jsut doesn't work). The remote blue power button has ALL the same issues (except contact bounce) of the hardware power button; one shot suspends, long hold gives the poweroff dialogue box. The arrow keys will select, and the OK= button will engage the selection.
