TOPIC: Remotely powering up and shutting down rpi3

Remotely powering up and shutting down rpi3 6 months 1 week ago #22267

Hi all,
I now have my remote set up complete, all,the software talking and all kit connected to my RPi3, so how do you guys remotely power up your RPi3, and what do you do as regards shutting it down at the end of a session, obviously as soon as you connect power to the rpi3it powers up as no on/off switch, so how do you do that remotely, and when ending a session do you just cut the power to the RPi3, or shut it down another way...
Thanks
AB

If your system does not go on battery power, I would advise to keep the Raspberry Pi running. It consumes so little power, that it is negligible in my opinion. It is not worth the effort and the possible complications when it is powered it up again.

Yes, I have noticed that when I power off the RPi3, it seems to take a while to regain network connection when powered back up, is this normal, i use a network cable....

If you let the Raspberry to power down itself (e.g. "sudo poweroff" in command line), it should wake up (at least on Raspbian) inside 10 seconds. If you just cut the power, it may leave corruptions on the filesystem. It can result long boot time with filesystem check or even a complete fail to boot.

My issue is that I will be remotely connected to it, so difficult to bring up command line to shut down, I will remotely log in via windows PC using Kstars / Ekos, and use indi web manager through that...

To issue terminal commands easily; use a simple terminal program like Putty to make an SSH connection to the Pi remotely.
