Gracefully Power Down Gigabyte AORUS Gaming Box

Since there is no power button on the Gigabyte AORUS Gaming Box (2080Ti, 3080 and 3090), how do you gracefully power down the eGPU without damaging the components?

@roedi78 suggests using a power cable with a switch, which I personally feel it may still have the possibility of damaging the components.

 

BTW, how do you turn on the laptop without opening the lid and hit the power button? Currently, I never shut down my old laptop, just putting it to sleep and wake it up with my wireless USB mouse.

@matthew_kwong, you have to press the reset button for 3 seconds to shut it down

Can anyone confirm that? Is that what the rest button long-press supposed to do? @itsage, I notice you mention holding the power reset button in other posts. Can you confirm that?
