You should use the "shutdown"-menue.

If you simply switch off power, your filesystem gets corrupted.

If I interpreted it correctly, he wants the off button to send the shutdown message to Linux.

I am sure that you need to configure ACPI for that but I have no idea how.

Hi,

If you mean you want to shut off the computer by holding the power button down, just push the power button for about 5 to 10 seconds and your computer will turn off completely. Nothing you have done in Puppy will be saved to your pup001 file however.
