Answers :

The RAM may have been "jammed up" when it was put to sleep. You said you powered down completely and then started up again. How long did you leave it before turning it back on? Try it again, but this time, unplug the adapter from it and also take out the battery so there is absolutly no power going to it. Leave it like that for about 5/10 minutes and then try it again.

Hopefully that will help you out
