Is there demand for user defined options for the connection of the
power adaptor? I could think of these:

#1 Options for "detect charger connected at startup"
- start rockbox
- resume play
- charge battery
- start recording (using the last selected source/quality settings)

#2 Options for "charger disconnected"
- do nothing
- stop play and shut down
- stop recording and shut down

This would not only enable timer recordings thru an external timer
device right away.
The "stop play when charger disconnected"-option would help a lot,
if you use the jukebox within the car (and want the jukebox to stop
when you turn off the engine) or as a background music device
permanently connected to an amplifier that switches the power for
connected devices.

What do you think?
