Best Way to Shutdown and Start Up? (without additional hardware or coding)

Hi. That defeats the purpose of the HAT.

True, but there is no advantage in using the HAT with a Pi 4.

Hi all,

After reflashing the SD card and using Volumio - always on - for a few weeks, I finally shut down the system per HeadGeek’s suggested protocol. All worked as it should on shutdown and startup.

Wonderful!! :+1:t4:

Best thing I’ve found is a hat called the Witty Pi 3. Will turn off the Pi once it senses a shutdown or restart and can safely shut down the Pi at the click of a button on the board or from a remote switch, arduino, relay, whatever at the external switch header. Can start the Pi, too.
