Hi Gegor and FZ,
A direct power off/on button is currently only supported by the Audiophonics Sabre V3/V4. However, we are indeed looking for simple solutions that can be applicable to all sound card/Pi setups. Let us know if you have any recommendations. Our Max2Play system already supports simple HTTP commands for shutdown, so this could be used as integration in a hardware button. The issue would be to find the correct hardware that reboots the Pi, reinitiating power input when it’s pressed the second time because the Pi hardware only boots when the power source is newly connected.
Therefore, we generally recommend running the Pi (especially zero and 3B) 24/7 as their power consumption is extremely low and they are made to run continuously.
