Jumpstart Jetson TX2 Dev Kit w/ Pi 3 GPIOs by Shorting Jetson Power Pins

Hi there,

I'm building a system that will be used remotely and one of the requirements is for our Pi 3 to be able to turn on our Nvidia Jetson TX2 dev kit in the event that it shuts down. We're currently shorting power pins on the Jetson and it works fine in exclusion on the jetson's end, but we are having a hard time getting any of the pins on our RPi 3 to switch a transistor we're using off, so that we can only short the power pins on the Jetson as needed from the GPIO on the Pi when it doesn't receive a ping from the jetson.

Any suggestions or roadmap would be appreciated.
