Well, cripes. Maybe I've been living on another planet for the last
four months and just imagined that it never did it before. *smile*

But seriously, even now, it doesn't seem to start up every time I
plug in the AC adapter. Maybe it is starting the Iriver firmware,
but doesn't always spin up the disk. *shrug* I can't see the
screen, so probably stuff is showing up there that i'm missing.

So, just to have it straight, when the AC adapter is plugged into an
Iriver H300 hosting Rockbox, Rolo is supposed to start the stock
standard Iriver firmware every time. Is that the intended behaviour
for the time being?

Thanks heaps and cheers,
