    Being a lazy sod I miss the keyboard mounted power button that the Macs had when I last was an Apple devotee. Is there a way to get it back? It's just that I tend to use my MBP in lid closed mode most of the time and it would mean that it saves me unlatching the MBP when I want to turn it on.

    you can turn it off by using "control + eject" I don't think you'll be able to turn it on like this... but it's something :)

    Have you experimented with just letting it go to sleep? If you enable it from the Bluetooth settings, you can wake from the BT keyboard or mouse (or if you're using ones with wires, you can always wake from them) by pressing any key or moving / clicking the mouse. And really you shouldn't need to reboot too often... once every couple of weeks is probably more than enough.
