Hi,

I'm currently running a chrome console and I belive by just turning it off at nights it will/maybe eventually corrupt the sd card etc...

So the thinking is could I use a gpio pin on a momental push to make switch and a python script to turn off the pi safely

Thanks stuart

Do a search for "Raspberry Pi shutdown button" and you'll find plenty of wiring info and scripts you can use.
