Recording is one thing but I've never seen a VCR, DVD player, DVR, etc. that
asks you to confirm if you hit the power button during playback.  People
don't usually hit a power button on accident, they hit it expecting that the
device shut off.  If I hit the power button on my dvd player while I'm
watching a movie, I don't have to confirm anything.  I hit the button and go
on my way without waiting around to see what happens.  This is by far the
most common behavior of any device with a power button.  I'm honestly
surprised forcing conditions on the power button is even a consideration!
The idea was bad from the start (sorry Rolf Ahrenberg).
