So, last night, I used my K2 as "usual" (I've only had it about 2 days). I usually use it with whispernet turned off unless I think I need it, to conserve battery. When I finished reading, I put it to sleep and went to sleep myself.

This morning, I go to wake it up...and it won't wake up. When I slide the power button, the screensaver or whatever still stays. If I slide it again, the screensaver changes (as if I had turned it on and then off again). I've done this a few times, tried waiting after I've turned it on for a while, tried pressing home or next when it's supposed to be on...I've also tried resetting it. Nothing has worked. So now my kindle is basically a pretty picture display.

Can anyone help with this?

Try plugging it in and letting it get a full charge again - only having it for 2 days it might have worn itself down indexing everything --

I was having the same problem when I found this thread.  I held the power button over for 15-20 seconds, and the Kindle reset within 30 seconds.  Hope this works for you too!  A week with my Kindle and it is now 2nd only to my iPhone! :-*

OMG, I was having this problem with my Kindle3. Holding the on/off button for 25 seconds totally got the charge light to come back on. Thank you so much for posting. I was going a bit crazy thinking my new Kindle had issues.  ;D

Ok so I was still having an issue and getting downright aggravated.  ??? So I called Customer Support and found out that the "official" Kindle covers (leather with the prongs and elastic band) are causing problems.  I had been using that cover, and now that I have discontinued using it - NO problems at all!  CS was very helpful and even issued me a refund for MORE than I paid for the cover so that I could get the lighted cover, which is supposed to correct the problem.  I am more than happy with this fix!  ;D  Will report back with how the new cover works.
