I am not sure if we are talking about the same thing.  I am not suggesting
to auto-suspend on inactivity timeout.  By the way, is there no way to
suspend the MPEG decoder on full-featured cards?  That'd allow the cards
run cooler.  It would also reduce the probability of firmware crashes
on corrupt MPEG stream.
