Well, I was just guessing. There are maybe some additional criteria. I
was also not sure, but I solved it other way.

I wrote a script which is waiting for xscreensaver to get activated.
At the moment when the xscreensaver gets activated, this scripts kills
mythfrontend and the focus is going back to mythwelcome. When the all
the jobs are done in the background, mythwelcome sets the time wakeup
time and shuts down mythbox.
