Hi. Apologies is this has already been asked. I searched and didn't see anything. I just ordered your kit a few hours ago and am reading.
I know that you can't interact directly with powering the machine on and off, but have you thought about making or is there a button for Wake-on-LAN? I already setup my server for WOL in prep for this arriving.
Also, this would be harder I think, but if there was a way to issue shell commands from the browser someone could "systemctl hibernate" or "systemctl suspend" to control the power state of their machine from a web app.
Can tinypilot already do this? Thanks!

Hi Michael. Thanks for your reply. I plan on sending a wol packet from the pi to my primary server.
(If you do end up looking into making a WOL button, dd-wrt has that functionality. I may take a peek at what dd-wrt was doing on an old gateway or something...)
Anyway, I look forward to setting this up and using it. I have gone weeks without making BIOS changes because I didn't feel like swapping dusty cables around, and this will give me something like IPMI on my headless consumer hardware server, so I don't have to swap dusty cables.
