Since pistar runs (normally) with the main partition/SD card set to Read-Only, there should be no real need to use a shutdown command -- there is no data to be flushed to SD card before the power is dropped.

Does that include the underlying Raspbian? I am by no means an expert! I have always heard Linux does not like having the power cord yanked and not properly shutting down can cause corrupted files. I understand from your message that the pi-star software may not be altered due to a power yank shutdown, but does this apply to the operating system also?

Although the occasional hard shutdown "probably" won't hurt anything, even Andy has stated you're safer doing a safe shutdown. There have been many many threads in the Facebook group about it, and I think a couple here.
