I'm not sure if we are talking about the same ?!
I know, that Rockbox is charging the battery anyhow, means in the charging
screen and in the WPS. Also, I was NOT talking about charging itself.

I was originally asking, why Rockbox doesn't enter the charging screen, when
I press and hold STOP while external power is plugged in (please see
detailed behaviour some mails ago).

In summary:
If there is NO external power plugged in and I press stop in the WPS, the JB
switches off.

If there is external power plugged in and I press and hold stop in the WPS
it should go to the charging screen (in my opinion), but it doesn't. It
shows the charging screen text but then returns to WPS.
