Subject: RE: Flash start up options - feature discussion? - was: Re: An other battery issue with flashed rockbox

My way : keeping it simple :)

In my opinion is : when the unit start with the charger already plugged
in (meaning the unit is turning ON because the charger has just been
plugged in) Rombox should enter in charging mode (disk is off, no
playback possible).

When charger gets disconnected, the unit should turn off by it self only
while in charging mode.

That's my idea about.

And then, no need for an other option to be added in the config menu. (I
don't use my in a car...)
