Actually I wouldn't. Its the POWER key, not the PAUSE key. If I do that 
with my old VCR (means, switch off the TV instead of pausing the VCR) 
the same thing would happen.

Its mainly because the 'old' code did not shut down while playback, at 
least since 1.3.25. (No longer stopping Transfer Mode or replay 
immediately when the Power button is pressed (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg))
Before, I think, the power button stopped playback and did shut down.


I don't want to add yet another config option, either we let the power 
button work directly while playback, or we ask for confirmation on 
playback. Whatever the majority wants.

Cheers,

Udo
