    But hey, its not my choice. I love rockbox, and this is just one minor thing that probably would take more work than it is worth.
  ** If we are taking a talley, I would be for the "shut down" switch, as I found it more desireable than holding down the button on my iPod Video. I tend to press too hard on the button while I am waiting for it to shut down.
  Just my 2 cents worth.

  Just to muddy the waters a little... I have synced the patches mentioned earlier in this thread (http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/6733).
  The first is trivial, enabling on all targets the existing Shutdown menu option which is currently only used on the Archos Player and Recorder. On an Ipod 5G the binsize and RAM cost are 128 bytes apiece.
  The second touches more code, adding a reboot option - RAM cost is 496 bytes, binsize is 480.

  I personally find these useful, for example, long ago working on a bug in the scrobbler code which only occurred if you didn't pause before shutting down (something not possible on an ipod), and tend to use them day-to-day.
