More laziness with the XBMC Remote Android App

The XBMC android app is great. I mean really really great. It might just be the best android app on my shiny new Atrix. There is/was one problem though. While the wake on LAN properly wakes my box up, the app has no suspend feature.

Hmm... eerily similar to the situation I ran into a few weeks ago. Luckily the app is GPL and I can have a go at fixing things.

XBMC has a secure auth http port exposed and a second unauthed raw command port for LAN only use. The patch below adds a suspend function that sends json to the raw port, and adds a button on the home screen to call the new function. For now this is just a simple get it done hack (hardcoded hostname/port, not following the code style/convention), but it would be cool to build a nice full featured "Shutdown" menu that enables exit, shutdown, suspend, etc. functionality.

Maybe later. Need sleep now... Self.Suspend()

MacBook Air is a strong computer and can play several games without damaging any hardware or software. However, it should only be used for casual gaming and not excessive gaming. If you intend to spend the whole day playing video games, you should not use your MacBook Air.
