Lots of documentation on how to wire up an external power button, does not seem to be any info on what is needed in the software side.
I have a tail -f /var/log/syslog running and I press my power button, no messages.
I hold the power button down and the system power down, no messages
Would really like to see a message saying the button push was seen and such.
ORDERLY SHUTDOWN is the key here.
