Now you're confusing me.
Isn't that the current behavior?
In version 1.3.25 there was a change

   No longer stopping Transfer Mode or replay immediately when the Power button
   is pressed (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).

Your suggested change would countermand that, wouldn't it?

Since I don't use the power off feature myself, and this is
apparently a rather complex thing, I'd like to hear some other
users' opinion about this before I change anything.
