Here is the power button:
I'm curious why or how you make this distinction. Power symbols have generally been made out of some variation of the 1,0 combination for quite some time. This works for rocker switches, which commonly have a 1 for on and a 0 for off. It also applies to push toggle switches, which typically have one of a few slight variations on a 1 inside of a 0.
The symbol with the broken circle typically indicates a "less complete" power-off, or a standby state. Since this is how most of our electronics work, it is a more common symbol, today. If you looked at electronics 10 years ago, you would find the other more often. The symbol with the entire circle is, more accurately, the "power button", then the broken one, although they are often interchanged at this point.
I do not know what shirt.woot history or drama is around the power symbol, and don't care in the least, but to refer to that symbol as the "power-off button" and the other one the "power button" is not only strange, but completely untrue.
I know wikipedia isn't always right, but here, it can be helpful: link
IEC 5007, the power on (line) symbol, appearing on a button or one end of a toggle switch indicates that the control places the equipment into a fully powered state.
IEC 5008, the power off (circle) symbol on a button or toggle, indicates that using the control will disconnect power to the device.
IEC 5010, the power on-off symbol (line within a circle), is used on buttons that switch a device between on and fully off states.
IEC 5009, the standby symbol (line partially within a broken circle), indicates a sleep mode or low power state. The switch does not fully disconnect the device from its power supply. This may appear on a toggle switch opposite a power on symbol, alone on a pushbutton that places the device into a standby state, or alone on a button that switches between on and standby.
Edit: A little research before you make designs or random statements WILL NOT make people think less of you, give it a try.
