Hard Restart - hold power button (10-20 sec)
Start from charge screen - Hold power button (1-5 sec)

I have both a first gen nexus 7 and a second gen nexus 7 and I can confirm that they DO have a power button.

The second gen nexus 7, made by asus, has the power button on the side near the front facing camera.

I have locked mine many times and what Allnei says works ... most of the time.  The only time that did not work for me I just left it sitting unplugged for a week until the battery was flat then charged it back up and it was fine.

hes saying it cant be accessed because of the way BFL integrates it into their miner.

Opening the case may void the warranty.

I would call bfl

BFL really fucked this one up.

You have to open the case.  There is no way to access the power button from the outside, unless you unscrew few screws and lift the front panel and use something slim to push the power button from the outside.

If you ever opened a PC, you should have no problems opening a case on mini rig.  Start with the bottom screws and work your way on the sides and
then the top.  Lift the top cover, disconnect Nexus.

Plug it into a 2A@5V charger.  Charge overnight. Put it all together.

I'm really not sure why BFL decided to put Nexus in mini rigs.  Most people who bought minis were/are experienced miners, most run them as USB device
and connect them to a PC.  The Nexus configuration is a mess, not very flexible, switching pools and changing configuration parameters.
Works well with EMC but that is pretty much it.  Cannot do much in terms of monitoring or pool failover.

I think it is insulting that you are spreading FUD about BFL mralbi.

yes its ok i just wanted to avoid opening the case because of warranty and was wondering how can the design be so stupid that you cannot restart the phone in case it runs out of battery without doing so :-)

OK thanks everybody Wink
