Actually, even in worst case you'll see the 5-minute-countdown, so you 
already have enough time to become interactive.

You could just set the Min User Inactivity to 0, and VDR will not shut 
down automatically. (unless you hit the power key - this will even work 
delayed, eg. after a recording ends.)

It is. Just type ./newplugin Noshutdown, then edit Noshutdown.c so that 
cPluginNoshutdown::Active() always returns a string. Done.
