Using a momentary v. toggle power switch
Here's a video update of my project status:
Today I realized the power switch must be latching, not momentary. You can see the results in the video.
What I'm wondering is if:
- The code can be recompiled for a momentary switch and if not,
- Does anyone have a suggestion for a simple latching circuit that will allow the keyboard RESET key to act as a latching toggle for power?
I suppose I've a third Q:
3. If "no" to both 1 and 2, do you have a suggestion for adding a power switch that will blend with this design? Note: I've already installed the Ethernet port where the original power switch was located.
@suleske I think I answered my own question. If I really want to use the keyboard, then here's an example of how to do #2:

@suleske Cool circuit. Reminds me of playing with a Miller Solar Engine to make BEAM robots. Entertaining video to boot!
What was that bit you said toward the end when the cap discharged? "Half a bee's dick"? Hilarious. I have heard "Bob's your uncle" but never that one before.
@suleske I found several inexpensive and simple circuits I could build. This little board has some added features (e.g. setting the key press switch delay), so I bought it: https://www.ebay.com/itm/262199569276
