I have RPi with M2P working as a server/player and an old SB Touch on the network in another room. I am controlling both with iPeng.

I am thinking about adding another RPi/M2P player only in my workshop, but I only use the workshop about 1 day per week. It seems like a waste of energy to keep the RPi running all the time in the workshop. Is there a way to safely shutdown the workshop RPi without having to turn on the computer and turn it off from the network webpage? I was wondering if a momentary switch on one of the GPIO of the RPi could be used to trigger the safe shutdown command?
