VDR is running
$USER is working on the PC.
Suddenly he gets the ugly message:
Broadcast message from root Mon Sep 17 21:50:20 2001...
The system is going down for system halt NOW !!
Ok, if he is or can become "root" too in this moment and
add a grant to the powerdown script he could stop the shut down.
(Hm, AFAIK "shutdown" does not know a power off option...
and "poweroff"="halt -p" does not know a grant...)
But what's with VDR?
The elegant solution would be a "w"+"awk" in the power down script
and see if anyone is logged on and how long he is idle.
Does VDR accept/survive/check a return from power down script
and retrigger the "User idle"?
