There should be an "are you sure" prompt for anything which involves the immediate shutdown/reset of a droplet.
Somehow I have actually managed to accidentally power cycle a droplet in a production environment at a peak time.
I'm disappointed that we actually have to request and have this voted on....
Yeah, this should not be something you "suggest," potentially destructive actions should always have a prompt.
It just happened to me 10 minutes ago.
It comes very often to me.
The problem is when I click to "Access", all the text change to th console access istantly, but the key still stay to "power cycles" for some seconds before shows "console access"
I can see this happening to me...
Can I suggest for a name change on this feature request to be more in line with the current control panel UI? There is no "power cycle", it's simply "Turn off".
I agree with the idea though. The placement of the "Turn Off" button so close to the account switcher and enabling of floating IPs is terrible. Way too easy to power down a droplet in a single click. There needs to be a confirmation prompt.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
