Sure. I tested i live mode. Whenever I pressed Power the syslog said
"power button pressed". But the picture did not freeze or anything. When
I looked in Setup.Misc.Suspended it was toggled, means set to yes. When
I repeated pressing the power button it toggled back to no.

Just tested that. After a few seconds the picture freezes when replaying
a recording. You can still use the OSD though. So you can press OK and
the status window just pops up. When I press power again, the Recording
starts playing again.

Well, mine too, so don't worry.
