Toggle switch linked to P6/RUN header


#1

Hi - I thought this section needed a bit of love ;-)

… so, I understand that the P6/RUN header on the Pi is meant to take a momentary switch, but would there be any caveat in using a toggle switch?

Granted I realise you would need to toggle on then back to produce the same effect, electrically this is the same thing, right?

Bonus question: if using a toggle switch in that fashion is viable, would there be any danger of damaging the Pi if for some reason the toggle switch was left in the ON state for a prolonged duration?
