    Power Button Behaviour

    BA2

      is there a way to change the timing of what power bitton does ?

       

      currently to shut down the system one has to press for 10 seconds. In many applications this is not the desired behaviour. Could we change this via bios or other settings ?

          Hello BA2,

           

          Thank you for your interest in Intel® Joule™ Products.

           

          I’ll be needing more time to find out if there is a power button handler for the Joule Module, since the documentation available only shows information regarding the behavior of the power button.

           

          As soon as I have relevant information I’ll post it here.

           

          Thank you for your patience.

           

          Regards,
          Andres V.

            Hello BA2,

             

            Sorry for the late reply.

             

            It is not always recommended to hold the power button for more than 10 seconds, because data may be lost and unstopped activities may not end properly with a forced shut down.

             

            You may want to try modifying the /etc/systemd/logind.conf file. You can change the behavior of the power button by changing the HandlePowerKey definition (which is defined as “ignore” by default), for example:

             

            HandlePowerKey=poweroff

             

            This will change the behaviour of the power button to shut down the system when pressed.

             

            Have a nice day.

             

            Regards,
            Andres V.
