The PowerBlockling is our simplest and most affordable power button solution for the Raspberry Pi. Its momentary button and indicator LED give you the power button that the Raspberry Pi is missing without any soldering.

If you are looking for a more elaborate power button solution with support for momentary as well as toggle buttons and a more detailed power status indication functionality you should take a look at the PowerBlock. Also, the PowerBlock does not make use of the standby mode, but fully enables and disables the power supply to the Raspberry itself.
