If I understood Paul's objections correctly, the power off case was
exactly the special case (that's why I mentioned power off in the
response to you). Paul suggested, that, if the playlist ended
"naturally", i.e. played to the end (and hence playback stopped), and
then the player was switched off (manually or automatically through idle
timeout), the playback should NOT automatically start the next time the
player is switched on. We're talking about this particular case only.

Yes, this is the description of how the desired behaviour could/should
be implemented technically. But we first have to agree on the desired
behaviour.
