Most microcontroller projects have an on/off switch or some quick way to cut power, while computers like the Raspberry Pi require an orderly shutdown procedure…otherwise the SD card may become corrupted and the system will no longer boot.
Pooling together tips from several places, this guide provides a single easy script for running Raspbian in a read-only state, making it more resistant to unplanned power cuts.
