first I liked your idea to integrate the sleeptimer and cancel and show
the "time left" into one menu line.
Only later I saw you cant add this function to the quick screen.
And using a %bs in wps is far easier to get the information how long
until sleep.

Since I do switch between sleep timer on/off quite often - its not nice
to go through menus every time.

So I reverted the sleeptimer duration to an int menu and added a menu
point "Run Sleep Timer" (bool),
which starts/stops the timer duration and resets it - if started, and
runs the the StartOnBootTimer if enabled....
Now you can easily add every single item to the quickmenu screen - which
gives the user more flexibility.

I would supply a patch if anybody is interested.
