I admit it falls short in the gaming department. I guess "game changer" wasn't the best term to use, not all of us use our computers for games though. They're best left to the consoles in my opinion....

I have no idea why you'd worry about wearing out the power switch, but surely the OS partition would be mounted read only?

You could possibly damage your own data though. Saved games, etc.
