Post subject:  Just received MyIDE II - Simple Fatloader question?

Just wondering if there is another way that I am missing to exit from a game (or demo, or program) and get back to the Fat32Loader menu? Or is cycling power the only way? I have been doing the latter. Also, if cycling power is the only possible way, is it safe to shut off at the power strip switch instead of the computer? My good ol' 800XL power switch works fine, but I am forseeing a LOT of power on/off cycles if this is the only way and I do not want to damage the switch :) I'd rather leave it on and use the power strip switch to cycle power...unless someone thinks that is a bad idea for some reason?

Sorry no, but there is a way that most of the times work.

First load MyBIOS, so you have the reset-menu behind SHIFT+CONTROL+TAB.
Then go back to the cartridge (SHIFT) and do your FAT32-thing.

When the game loaded is polite and leaves the MyBIOS running you can use SHIFT+CONTROL+TAB
or when not perhaps hold-SELECT-down and do RESET.

Merry xmas :)
