When I try this on my Recorder 20[0], the play indicator in the display
changes to stop, the HDD spins up again and is shut down by loss of
power a moment later. I guess Rockbox tries to load the main directory
in order to show it in the dir browser because the spinup doesn't happen
if I shut it down while in the menu.
