That's the whole problem with your approach. People shouldn't have to "remember" to not leave it on a certain screen to avoid problems. That's not user-friendly at all and I can't imagine any other consumer device being released with such instructions "remember not to leave it on this screen, otherwise it will run at full power/heat even though it's not actually doing anything useful".

Many people do apparently leave their RPi's running 24/7, as they're low-power devices and it makes it an "instant-on" device, rather than having to wait whilst it boots and they shouldn't have to be worrying "oh, did I/my wife/my kids leave it on the Settings screen. I'd better turn on the TV and check before I go out/to bed".

I appreciate that the RPi and XBMC aren't commercial products but that's no excuse not to make it user-friendly,
