Yep sounds like a coinsciencedence and I lean to overheating
Check to see that it is not overheating. If cpu fan is not blowing (could be frozen up) or if the fan in the power supply is clogged with dust, the computer may be overheating and refusing to some on. If it is dust, arrange to blow it out completely. take off cover and try to start the machine, the fan should turn on the CPU.
