My system is configured correctly following the wiki. It shuts down when
idle and wakes up when a recording is due.

You mention mythshutdown, could this be the cause of the problem? I'm
using the default server halt command "sudo shutdown -h now" and this is
written in the wiki too.

Wait a minute, now I see that there is something differently written in
the mythwelcome section of that article.

Command to set Wakeup Time             : mythshutdown --setwakeup $time
Server halt command                    : mythshutdown --shutdown
Pre Shutdown check-command             : mythshutdown --check

I'll try this tomorrow. The BE is busy recording right now...
