FS#9877 - Can't quit the lamp plugin

r19933: the lamp plugin can only be left via shutdown (long press of POWER), at least on my Sansa e200. All other buttons are ignored.

BTW: there is the patch FS#8934 that implements switching the lamp on and off. Why isn’t it committed?

shold be fixed in r19992.

What button is supposed to exit Lamp on the e200?

Also, please don’t use flyspray as a method of asking “why isn’t X committed?” If you feel a patch should be committed, send an email to the -dev mailing list with the patch, and stating your willingness to do the work necessary to fix up whatever objections the developers have. “Patch X isn’t committed yet” is not a bug, and does not belong here even as a footnote.

According to this: It’s the power button. I can confirm this too.

introduced in r19925: Fix a wrong check in lamp, spotted by DerPapst

maybe the check is now wrong :)

I think the comment by tri170391 about the quit button is not correct. Any key not assigned a special function should quit the plugin.

It’s what said in the manual, but you are right it’s any button other than select will do the job.

i can confirm, and i have 2 observations; 1) not all the buttons are ignored, both the left/right keys and the scroll wheel still work, as well as the lock still responds, and 2) the menu is shown a split second, along with the “Shutting down…” dialog, for a fraction of that. beyond that, im kinda baffled.
