Nespi Case+/ safe shutdown installed / power and reset buttons not working at all

Hi guys, i am completely new to this.I have Recalbox installed on my Raspberry Pi 3B+, housed in Nespi Case+.
It was a fresh install.
I have installed the safe-shutdown script via PuTTY and switched the internal switch to ON.
Issue: When i turn the Raspberry on, the Power LED goes on just for a second and then goes off. The Recalbox boots normally, but neither the Power nor the Reset button respond at all.
When i switch the internal switch to OFF, everything works fine, it just has hard Reset and shutdown.
Here is what i got back when installing the script, just to be sure, because i don't understand these things:

@yeeshkul there is no need to install anything. Just activate the onoffreset switch in recalbox.conf and the case will work.
I do need to install the script. The Nespi Case+ page sais so.
See the link
Go in your recalbox.conf file, open it using notepad++, check the required line :
# System Variable # You can configure your recalbox from here # To set a variable, remove the first ; on the line # ------------ A - System Options ----------- # # Uncomment the system.power.switch you use ;system.power.switch=ATX_RASPI_R2_6 # http://lowpowerlab.com/atxraspi/#installation ;system.power.switch=MAUSBERRY # http://mausberry-circuits.myshopify.com/pages/setup ;system.power.switch=REMOTEPIBOARD_2003 # http://www.msldigital.com/pages/support-for-remotepi-board-2013 ;system.power.switch=REMOTEPIBOARD_2005 # http://www.msldigital.com/pages/support-for-remotepi-board-plus-2015 ;system.power.switch=WITTYPI # http://www.uugear.com/witty-pi-realtime-clock-power-management-for-raspberry-pi ;system.power.switch=PIN56ONOFF # https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Add-a-start-stop-button-to-your-recalbox-(EN) ;system.power.switch=PIN56PUSH # https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Add-a-start-stop-button-to-your-recalbox-(EN) ;system.power.switch=PIN356ONOFFRESET # https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Add-a-start-stop-button-to-your-recalbox-(EN) ;system.power.switch=PIN356PUSHRESET # https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Add-a-start-stop-button-to-your-recalbox-(EN)
line 14 : simply remove the ";" in front on the pin356ONOFFRESET
Save your file, and that's all.
Don't forget recalbox is an operating system !
@yeeshkul I really don't understand this kind of attitude. You already tried it and it didn't work as expected. You get new instructions and you don't want to believe it.
@paradadf I did try without the script and it didn't work. Both buttons were completely irresponsive. I installed the script - which installed well - and there was no change.
Why would i believe something that is not even explained, when the RetroFlag company itself directs people to install the script.

@Scavy Thank you, i will try this
@yeeshkul I gave you the same instructions as scavy.
And you are in recalbox forum... so you better believe what recalbox people tell you or you should ask retroflag directly.
@paradadf I see, i am sorry, i must have missread your post. Thank you
