I agree to move it down until before the line

    if (timer && Delta < Setup.MinEventTimeout * 60 && ForceShutdown) {

in order to not interfere with the "assuming manual start of VDR" stuff.
But if we move it further down, the dsyslog("reboot at %s", *TimeToString(Next))
will be executed, even if the plugin's activity prevents that from

Well, this is only important if VDR shuts down by itself, unattended.
So I guess it dosn't really matter if it stays up a little longer ;-)
