FS#11063 - ipod turns itself on for no reason, seems to think wakeup alarm is set?

No idea if this applies to other players. It only seemed to start happening for me at some point after the ipod video shutdown patch went into trunk (the one that uses the OF to shutdown).
Sometimes, when I turn my ipod on, I find it is in the OF, even though I shutdown from rockbox. Say, it's a day since I shutdown rockbox, I turn my ipod on and I get the apple logo quickly and then the OF. i.e. a "hibernate" wakeup rather than full OF boot.
What appears to be happening is this: rockbox wakeup alarm must be turning itself on (with a random time, presumably, since I didn't set one); this coupled with the fact I leave my hold switch on means at the wakeup time the OF boots; then (at some point before I turn on my ipod) the OF has already hibernated; so that when I turn it on it's a "quick" OF boot.
It seems to be more reproducible if I leave the ipod plugged into usb for a long period of time, but that reeks of coincidence to me.
One additional annoyance is that, from rockbox, I can't even *see* if the wakeup alarm is enabled or disabled - I can manually set it or cancel it, but I cannot determine if it is set or unset without changing its state to set or unset, as far as I can tell. This means I cannot actually tell if rockbox is somehow re-enabling my wakeup alarm after I manually unset it, or something else.
