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()
