    First, I love this site and everyone here. Recently finished my RetroPie build. It’s great.

    Now, would it be possible to make the Pi boot up from a usb controller, much like the USB Wake up from S3 feature or Power on by Keyboard feature in most BIOS?

    If not, would mounting a switch to the GPIO pins to achieve the same purpose be that difficult? The reason I ask is I’d like to be able to boot the Pi back up without having to unplug the power and then plug it back in.

    I’m powering the raspberry from TV’s USB… It isn’t exactly what you are looking for but it’s working fine for me!
