Default [Q] Galaxy s3 Sprint will not turn on

So at school today, I turned my phone off as class was starting, it was working perfectly. Afterwards, I tried turning it back on and it simply does not at all. I connected it to a charger, no buzzing or anything that usually happens. I removed the battery and put it back in, nothing. I used somebody else's battery, nothing again. There is no response whatsoever. FYI i am running stable version of cyanogenmod 10.1 (android 4.2). Anyone else with the same problem or know how to fix it cheaply??? Or am I screwed??

No guarantees, but this occasionally does help someone with a similar problem. Take the battery out and leave it out for a good half hour or more. Overnight even better. Put it back in and test it.

If it doesn't work, maybe the power switch inside has completely gone bad. Under warranty or not?
