Grant, so you have noticed that it is harder to shut down a Rockbox'd
player than when in the original firmware? I'm just looking for a little
validation here.

And BTW, you are top-posting; this list prefers bottom-posting with
trimmed-down quotes. Someone else will say it too, I'm sure.

Mr. London, I was indeed speaking of the _e_200 series. I realize this
is a matter of personal preference, and there is little to go on other
than "it feels like...". However, from what I have seen, Rockbox'd
players are difficult to power off, moreso than in the original
firmware. I don't care if the player is actually powering off or
sleeping; that is irrelevant to the point I am making.
