Reduce power consumption when not in use

There are some things I can do to reduce power consumption.
- Use a button connected to a gpio to turn off the hdmi.
- When that button is toggled I can also turn off the ACT LED.
- If this button is toggled I can kill some daemons that are only managing the UI since the UI is not on.
Toggling the button again will re-enable these features. These features are pretty easy to implement as long as the gpio can be read at any time.See
