@cjohnson26 the Pie will boot and the function of these few lines are just to ask status for a sensor after the has booted. But for your idea to work as on off switch for booting up a device this also works but you do not need a code or something. Just connect the hall effect sensor like a switch on a power device like the Mausberry or a Pimoroni on off SHIM and it will act like a button press. For switching of you need to ask status then you can use that code.
