Auto power on

Normally, after applying power, you have to push the button to turn on the ns2. If you want it to switch on automatically, you have to switch a bit in the i2c eeprom. The eeprom is available for reading and writing under Linux at the pseudo file /sys/bus/i2c/devices/0-0050/eeprom. The content of the eeprom is the following:

Offset Meaning Notes
00..01 Version/MAC Addresses It indicates how many mac addresses are stored in the eeprom, it's always 00 02 (2) but only the first mac appears to be valid
02..07 Mac address It's the mac address of your board
08..13 2nd Mac address Bogus mac address 01 FF FF FF FF FF
14 Power flag 0 = wait for the button, 1 = auto power on
15 Fake sleepmode Used by the Lacie stock initramfs, it's FD and you can ignore it

Changing byte 14 from 0 to 1 will enable auto switch on.
