Yes, but you answer does not address the "dimension" of power-off. With
the current SVN, if the start screen is set to WPS, and I stop the
playback (manually) and then switch off the player, the playback starts
automatically after the nect power on. So even if the playback was
stopped "the last time" it will start the next time. I don't see a
reason to differentiate *why* the playback stopped the last time.

And again: I consider "Start screen = WPS" as an automatic press of PLAY
(or selecting "resume playback" from the menu) after power on, and hence
would expect the same reaction.
