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.
