Change power button to allow graceful shutdown
It would be great if the behavior of the power button on the back of XG appliances could be configurable.
At the moment if you press the button on an XG85 the unit turns off immediately.
We'd like to change this to trigger a graceful shutdown.
We have appliances that tour and are setup and packed up every few days and would rather be shutting them down properly.

THe button does signal the OS to shut down, so it should be graceful. Have you ever experienced problems that can be traced to hard shutdown?
