I am using gpio146 to open/close a relay.  This relay controls power to a non eye-safe laser, so this behavior is undesirable.

I close a shutter at power up and as soon as boot up is complete code shuts the laser off.  The laser is not radiating for very long.. for that brief moment it is shuttered, but we would rather the laser not turn on the moment power is applied.

Is there a way to change the default state of the pin?  Or is there a pin that comes up low by default?
