Switched outlet for power amp

Is it recommended to use a switched outlet for a power amp with a soft start feature? Or, should one simply use the power button on the amp itself, and deal eventually with wear and tear on its power switch?

So, what happens when you play live music with applause?

Generally not a good idea unless it is a low power amp. High powered amps can be too much of a load for those switches even if they have a soft start. Triggers have taken over as the preferred method of remota start up.
I leave all my equip in standby mode. Have hears it's hard on capacitors and transformers to power up from being cold.
