You can set the config option "Min User Inactivity" to 0, and VDR wont 
ever get 'inactive' by itself.

(with one exception, if a recording is going on and you press the power 
key, VDR will do the shutdown at end of recording. Technically this is 
user inactivity.)

The inactivity shutdown is nice as a fallback, for example if I just 
forgot to shut down, or if a power failure caused a reboot to make sure 
the wakeup is re-programmed.
