Default [Q] Found my N7 hot with unresponsive power button and drained battery

Hello All,

I've had my N7 since release so I can't take it back to futureshop for a quick/easy return.

I went to pick up my N7FHD today and found that it was very hot (screen and back) and that I couldn't turn it on by pressing the power button. I had to hold the power button and the down button to finally get the device to respond. Over a span of ~4hours it went from 90% battery to 35%.

Now that it's back on, it's nice and cool and the power button is responding. Any idea what caused this? Should I call Asus?

I bought a refurb N7 a week ago, and right out of the box with no apps installed other than the stock OS it's exhibiting this behavior. Whatever this is I don't think it's an app.
