Well, I can understand that. Would you consider making this another
option on the resume menu? I never have a problem not holding the switch
long enough, but it's anoying to have to deal with this fairly regularly.

Setting it to ask wouldn't really help. For me the whole point of resume
is that if music is playing when I turn it off, then I want music to
automatically restart playing when I turn it back on. If music is NOT
playing when I turn it off (or it turns itself off) I do NOT want it to
automatically start playing some fragment of music the next time I turn it
on.

Actually, thinking about this, clearing resume when playback is stopped
from user input (pressing the stop key) is different from clearing resume
when the playlist complets playing the last song. If it would at least
not resume when the playlist runs out, it would be a big improvement.

That was my initital post on this topic, BTW, NOT the broader issue of
clearing it when stop is pressed. I really don't care about the
later.

Certainly not the end of the world, just kind of strange the way it
behaves now.

Thanks,
Michael
