Power switch circuit

Even though the switch seems to have a hard, 'one or the other' feel to it, feeling it out on my Gameboy you *can* actually slide it carefully to sit in the middle... Though it requires a lot more 'effort' to not simply click it into place.

Perhaps if the button weren't so snugly in place it would be easier to make use of a momentary contact? Of course this could lead to other problems if not done correctly.

Unfortunately, the Gameboy doesn't recognise that middle setting as anything. It will only ever be on or off. It doesn't mean we can't modify the switch, though. It's a small issue.

Like joe says (thanks joe), power shutdown can be accomplished by software, but our aim is to have an emulator that boots straight into the emulator and uses only the face buttons of the Gameboy to function. So we do not want (ultimately) to be encumbered with things like mice and keyboards...
