Front Panel Power Button vs. Remote Power On

Is there any advantage in using the front panel power button over remote power on?

How does the startup or shutdown sequence vary?

    Yes. It would give me a chance to crawl under my desk twice per day.

    Both mechanisms (front panel power button and the Remote On plug) trigger the same power up/down sequences. So I think the answer is that there is not an advantage other than the ergonomics of accessing the mechanism.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
