Fuse+ Needs Hands-free Auto-play

Too often to count, I have powered on my Fuse+ and put it my cell phone caring case while it is starting-up.  I have my ear buds in.  Because it take so long to start, I forget that I am waiting for it to start.  Some times I have started my hiking, or reading the paper, or driving-- until my book is ready to start.  The next thing I hear is a tick indicating that the my player is shutting down.  A few times I have restarted the unit only to miss the window of opportunity again.  

I accept the start delay.  

What would be nice is auto-start or auto-play.  It may need to be a settings option.  Some may find this a distraction.  But for me, it would be a safety  feature.
