  • Raspberry Pi: Wall Mounted Calendar and Notification Center

    Great idea, that makes we want to go back to my maker and electronics learning.I'm really not into Python, and I'm mostly a noob on hardware, but wouldn't bepossible to turn the monitor on/off using the Pi instead of a hard switch? I was thinking that you could wire the "on" button to the Pi like the others, and program it to signal the power pin of the controller board. That would allow for an automatic 30 seconds monitor shutdown after the last click, and other things, like a long press for a 15 minute shutdown, reloading the page only when turning the monitor on, or programmed display times (every week day from 6am to 7am). That looks easily programmable, the hardware side sounds simple too, isn't it?
