Sorry...I somehow missed this in my response. I am able to use the power button to power on my G7. At first, it didn't seem to work, but you must only press it once and briefly. Holding it down causes it not to power on. This is unlike pressing 'Play', which must be held down for 3 secs.

My Auto Load CHDK power-up routine is this:

1) press and immediately release the power button (starts in Play Mode). Lingering too long on the Power Button causes the camera not to power up.

2) press the shutter button halfway (this puts it into REC Mode).

This saves 2 or 3 secs over pressing the Play Button.
