At the moment I use a relatively complex patch that does some

modify the wakeup-time in a plugin I could re-implement the complete
patch as a plugin.

I think a much easier solution (implementable in runvdr/vdr-initscript) is:
Write down wakeup-time when shutting down and comparing that to time when system/vdr starts (with some margin).

That's exactly what my Gen2VDR distribution is doing, and it works fine.
It's not the job of vdr to guess why it was started, but it would be nice if vdr offers an option to shutdown after next recording ( maybe via svdrp call ).
