I have an unused button on the pitft screen that I want to use as a shutdown button. I tried the steps on adafruit but it just won't work. I've figured out hotkeys but not how to trigger a safe shutdown. Can anyone help me out? I'm still a noob


There is an excellent tutorial in the MagPi Magazine that explains how to Add an Off Switch to Power Down Your PI. You should be able to modify the instructions to make use of the unused button on pitft screen.
