On the Gigabeat the MENU key is currently used to allow background charging when you plug in the USB cable. This is inconvenient if you're in the WPS, because holding the MENU button brings up the quickscreen.

This patch assigns the functionality to the A button instead. A short press of the A button still stops playback in the WPS and menu. Long press isn't assigned to anything in any context. (Currently, long press stops playback in the menu, but I don't think anyone will miss that.)

Let me know how this looks.
This task depends upon

This should be the HOLD switch IMO.
