    After installing the ControlBlock service and attaching the controlblock the system just shuts down as soon as it boots up. I thought the toggle switch was supposed to be optional… Is there a way to disable this feature?

    Yes – the power switch functionality is optional. You can disable it in the configuration file /etc/controlblockconfig.cfg and set

    "powerswitch": false

    Does this solve your issue?
