Default [Q] what is the on/off switch under the cover?

What is the function of the switch under the SD card cover? It is in the RED position and appears to be OFF. Didnt see any reference to it in my docs.

Any ideas?

It's a reset button.

It doesn't mess with your data. It just cuts the power, so it wouldn't do much harm if you did.

So then it is not a reset, it is a power disonnect?

It's a soft reset. Same effect as holding power + volume up a few seconds..
