Pulling the plug on your Raspberry Pi before it safely shuts down... is a bad idea! This can result in a corrupt microSD card and file system. Normally, we can use the menu bar from the GUI or type a command in the terminal window to safely shutdown the Pi.

If you are looking for a quicker solution (especially if you are using a headless setup), have no fear! You can safely turn your Raspberry Pi off using a general purpose button and a Python script! We use this ability with the Pi AVR Programmer HAT in production after programming and testing certain boards. For more information, check out the tutorial below!
