Hello,

At the moment the only way to shutdown the raspberry is with the emulationstation menu. I mean, with joystick and game buttons you select the option menu in the emulationstation to shutdown the system. There are also a button that turn off the current only to raspberry pi, but it is a little wild ;-). I think it could be a good idea to do a hardware button through the GPIO port to force a soft shutdown of the system. It could be useful for example when a game hang or is missconfigured and you can’t return to emultationstation menu. I’ll post it if I added this improvement. I hope it don’t become my children’s favourite button! 😉

Something like that:
