      Hi @Prspyder, thanks for your suggestion!

      TinyPilot doesn't currently support hardware-level power / reset functionality. TinyPilot is capable of Wake from LAN, and TinyPilot can power-off target machines using their operating system's shut-down procedures.

      There is an open Github ticket for this power / reset functionality. It's not part of our short-term roadmap yet, but we're always working to improve TinyPilot's software and hardware. We prioritize features based on user demand, so we'll definitely consider your feedback in our planning.

      If you like, you're welcome to subscribe to the Github ticket for updates. I've also made a note in the ticket that you're interested in this functionality.

      Please let me know if you have any other questions.

          If you don’t mind getting your hands a little deeper into the hardware and software, you could probably lash something together to do it with the info on usbrelay I wrote up.

          You can get the usbrelay boards in 1, 2, 4, and 8 relay variants.
