My bad, I was confused by the indentation of the closing brace.  I am
used to indenting the closing brace by one fewer level.

The attached patch avoids the cControl::Shutdown() if the prompt is not

It would be even better to add a "confirm shutdown" prompt in the case
that no recording is active, but a recorded stream is being played back
when hitting the Power key.

It can be confusing that the Power key stops recorded playback but not
live playback.  I'd rather display the "press any key to cancel
shutdown" prompt and keep playing back the recorded stream.  Alas, I
do not know how to achieve that; maybe it would require some more
inter-thread communication.
