But it is still inconsistent: Pressing power in the file browser does
stop the music, but it also should start playback again without leaving
the folder where you currently are. So a IMHO good key binding would be:

power: toggle play/pause everywhere (except perhaps in game-plugins
where it is used to exit the game often)

long-power: turn off the player

play/pause: toggle between WPS and where you have been before pressing
play/pause the last time.
