You said you left it in the car, but you didn't say whether you stopped
it or not. Obviously, if you left it playing overnight, it would
certainly drain the batteries. Also, if you pause it, instead of
stopping it, it won't auto-shutoff, so if it was sitting there in the
WPS with the power LED on....
Does the player use the same shutoff algorithm as the recorder? Maybe
it's done in hardware...?
Why, oh why,
Do my telnet sessions die?
