This is what I meant about HAVE_POWEROFF_WHILE_CHARGING not being
defined for the H300. If this is not defined, Rockbox will not power
down. I suspect this is primarily designed for units that require a
software charging algorithm, but I still wonder why Rockbox doesn't drop
the user into the charging screen when the user requests a power down
instead of leaving them in the browser/WPS.

The bootloader starting the Iriver firmware when the charger is
connected is currently intentional, though this was one of my other
questions; i.e. how much work is there before Rockbox can boot on
charger insert when powered off?
