And how can you tell before there's visual feedback that your press of
"Select" on the menu entry registered? That was my point: You still have
the exact same problem.

I was referring to the button that performs the shutdown function.
Whether this is a button labeled "Play" or a button actually labeled
"Power", functionally it can be thought of as "the button that powers
down the player from within Rockbox."

You're the one saying "You can't know if you've held the button long
enough." I thought you wanted visual feedback. Simply having a menu
entry would not ensure you knew it was powering down until you received
some sort of feedback.
