Power-off / Shutdown Cobra by code


Is it possible to power-off or shutdown the fez cobra by code? I’ve tried the powerstate method but the the systems seems only to stop responding and freezes to screen.


I don’t think that is possible without extra hardware.

You could add a set / reset circuit. Connect power button to set, and fez I/O to reset. Let the circuit control a relais that switches the power.


Could you use this?


FEZ Cobra can hibernate if that helps. You can define how you want it to wake up through GPIO or Alarm timer.


I think for now, I go for the hibernate option. In the near future I want to implement a set / reset circuit. Thx for the quick responses!!
