FS#13132 - Idle power-off in recorder causes loss of settings and active recording

Daily build c6d5cd7-170907

An idle power off can occur in recording mode. When it does, data loss occurs. This has already bitten me a few times.

Steps to reproduce (on battery, not charging):
1. Execute Settings > Manage Settings > Reset Settings
2. Set Settings > General Settings > Startup/Shutdown > Idle Poweroff to 1 minute
3. Reboot
4. Go to Recording mode
5. Note current Volume and Gain settings and then change them to something else and note the new settings. Don't start a recording; just leave it in “stop” mode (*not* record or record-pause).
6. Wait for automatic power off
7. Power back on and check recorder settings

Expected: Settings are what they were after being changed.
Actual: Settings reverted to what they were on boot.

This can cause the loss of entire recordings, too:

8. Go back to Recording mode.
9. Wait until just before Rockbox would power off, then start a recording (if the display goes to sleep, it comes back on a bit before powering off; start the recording as soon as it comes back on).

Expected: Recording is done as usual
Actual: Rockbox powers off anyway, without warning, less than a minute into the recording. The recording is lost (or if the file is there, it's unplayable; maybe this depends on the recording format used).
