You must not have small children. My power and reset button just make a
clicking sound - cause I disconnected the wires to it! Even my littlest figured out
how to hold the button for 4 seconds to power it off.
It turns on by IR remote, and shuts down cleanly by IR remote. If I have to force
it off, I pull the plug.
Also, mythfrontend runs from a script which starts it in a loop. So if it ever crashes
(which it rarely ever does), or if someone accidentally exits out of it (more likely), it
starts right back up.
