hi, yeah, the power|suspend button and the reset button attach directly to the PMIC (power management integrated circuit).  See the schematic diagram here (although its a bit out-of-date).

... I have not tried to see the event from evtest !?!  ... also I have tested in both debian and ubuntu, holding the power on button for two seconds will cause the PMIC to signal the GPU ( OS ) to pull up the power off dialogue.

edit:  ok... the trick to see the event ( power on ) in evtest, is to select the axp81x option (1).

... the event comes up nicely, code 116 ( key_power ).

( this I tested with evtest on ubuntu mate )

So, if you want to build your own monitor, you need to first tell the OS not to respond to 116, key_power, then map that key for your own purposes.

As Mark indicated, it does work... the trick is to to select the right device. 

You can see in the code box below the output from running evtest on a ubuntu box, and selecting axp81x-supplyer, which was device event number 1 in that case. Credit goes to xalius for posting it in that thread I linked earlier about the power button. The button was pressed twice, so you can see a 1 when it was pressed, and a 0 when it is released.

ubuntu@pine64:~$ sudo evtest

I am definitely using the apx81x-supplyer device to test and still not getting any output.  I followed the example from the xalius link that pfeerick posted. Not sure what's wrong.

At the risk of being pedantic, are you using the right switch ?

... the power switch is the one on the left as you are looking at the end of the board with the usb ports.

Yes, I'm using the switch on the left, nothing. I tested an android image (an older version than the one currently available) and the power buttons are not working. I'm thinking this indicates an issue somewhere?

System --> Preferences --> Power Management Preferences

Then click the General tab, and then set the power button to "Ask Me", and set the suspend button to "Do Nothing".

(hope that helps)

So should this config change make the reset button inoperable with Debian (I'm running Debian-Mate)?

Thats how I interpret it, suspend=reset...but even with "do nothing" as the suspend choice, the reset button still puts me in the unrecoverable sleep mode with a long or short press.

Power button, long or short press, brings up the suspend menu.

From whats been described, that doesn't sound like expected behavior. Its not a huge issue, as I seldom use the buttons with linux images anyway, but now that I'm seeing that behavior, it will bug me until I understand what should or should not be happening.

I know the power management menu is functioning, as I changed the power button option to "shutdown", and it skipped the menu and immediately shutdown, as expected.

Is there possibly some other config setting overriding the power management setting for the reset button?

hi Don, no.
... reset is NOT suspend. The short-press of the power button is the suspend.  I turn that 'OFF' in my debian, because it suspends forever and won't wake up.  Apparently (says pfeerick) the new Android image does wake up. 
reset is JUST a hard reset of the PMIC and it does just that... and its hard on the system because it doesn't care what is going on, it just drops the power and resets !
So, the config I noted above, to re-iterate, the short-press does nothing, the long-press pulls up the power down dialogue, and the really long press forces power off.

Ok, that clarifies...was missing the point of the short-press of power, not reset, being suspend. And what I thought I saw with the reset being a suspend state was just me being impatient waiting for the reboot.
