I have one of the soft keys on the display do that, its linked to this 
script, which I just put in /usr/local/bin/mythpowerbutton.sh

MYTHEXISTS=`/bin/ps -e | grep mythfrontend | grep -v grep | awk '{print 

if [ "$MYTHEXISTS" != "" ]; then
        for MYTHPROCESS in `/bin/ps -e | grep mythfrontend | grep -v 
grep | awk '{print $1}'`
                echo $MYTHPROCESS;
                kill -9 $MYTHPROCESS;

That does the job nicely
