Improvement suggestion for future radios: power button

My Flex 6400 is wonderful!  I have it situated on my desktop behind one of my monitors and to power it on or off I reach around the edge of the monitor to press the button.  Unfortunately, the button is very, very sensitive and provides almost no tactile feedback.  It would be better if the button was textured rather than smooth and if it provided a distinct 'click' tactile feedback.

Michael, I have a similar experience with the button on my 6600. Several times a passing brush with a cable or paper turns off the radio. First time or two I didn’t realize what turned radio off.
