I believe you can set the bios of the Revo to power on when it gets
plugged in. You can always use "poweroff" or "shutdown" commands to
power it down. The OP asked if there is a way to enter shutdown by
pulling the power chord. I am not sure how you would sustain power to
the MB to gracefully power it down in that scenario.
