I'd also say that the Power button should shutdown without confirmation
unless there is a recording going on or a plugin is Active().

To avoid accidental shutdowns it might still prompt the user with
"Shutdown - press any key to stay up" or something like that for a
few seconds, but it shouldn't be necessary to confirm anything, even
if a replay is currently going on.
