Argon ONE Power Button Functions

The process above will automatically install the configuration that will activate the Argon ONE Power Button with the following functions:

  • Pressing the power button while the Pi is off will turn on the Pi.
  • Pressing the power button for at least 3 seconds while the Pi is on will safely shut down the Pi and turn it off. This is indicated by the green LED blinking.
  • Pressing the power button for less than 3 seconds while the Pi is on will do nothing.
  • Pressing the power button twice while the Pi is on will reboot the Pi. This is indicated by the green LED blinking.
  • Pressing the power button for at least 5 seconds while the Pi is on will force shut down the Pi. This is indicated by the sudden stopping of the Pi.

Argon ONE Fan Speed and Temperatures (Default values)

Upon installation of the Argon ONE script by default, the settings of the Argon ONE cooling system are as follows:

  • When the CPU temperature is at 55 C, the fan will run at 10% of its maximum speed
  • When the CPU temperature is at 60 C, the fan will run at 55% of its maximum speed
  • When the CPU temperature is at 65 C, the fan will run at 100% of its maximum speed

Configuring the Argon's case fan and temperature values.

It is possible to customize when the fan changes temperature and what speed the fan runs at. To do that follow the below steps:

  1. SSH the Yodeck player by using this guide here
  2. Run the below command with admin privileges. The Password that you will need is the same that you used to SSH the player.

    nano /etc/argononed.conf


  3. After finishing the configuration, save the file and run the below command.

    systemctl restart argononed.service
  4. The fan should start using the new temperature thresholds now.
