Shutdown button with moitessier hat
#1
I'd like to have the possibility to have a momentary pusch that can shutdown all the program and the raspberry.
In this way before turn off the power, i can shutdown the raspy in a very simple way.

I have set the moitessier hat and i don't know if there is some free GPIO that i can use for this purpose.

Thank you

what I understand, from the users guide of the moitessier hat, is that the gpio 5 and 6 of the rspi is not used by moitessier hat, so I can use one.

I found a modification of the config.txt file, that should be ok for my purpose:

Code:
dtoverlay=gpio-shutdown,gpio_pin=5

So I have to connect (soldering?) the temporary switch to gpio 5 and ground, modifing the config.txt file, and everything should work correcly.

Anyone can tell me if this is going to work or not?
