Subject: Re: FM Recorder, Interesting notes

Magnus,

If you keep the 'Off' key pressed for more than 5 seconds (I think), you'll
have the effect of a hardware power-down. It can get you out of crashes.
I think this (very usefull) feature is hardware controlled for it always worked
when I needed it (and when the keyboard was locked.)

Ludovic.
