Default [Q] My N7's screen won't turn on at ALL.

Seriously, I just got it today, I haven't even tampered with any settings, and it just gets messed up?

This is all I did:

1) Turn on tablet, update to 4.4.2
2) Made it to home screen, watched some Youtube videos
3) I turned it off by pressing all three buttons

All of this while plugged in to the wall.

Now all of a sudden the screen is off, won't turn back on, no matter what button I press.

The weirdest thing is that when I plug it in to my computer via USB, Windows makes that "device plugged in" sound effect as though it was on, even though this tablet won't turn on at all. I got no blinking notification light, nothing. The only indication this thing is working is when I plug it in to the computer and Windows makes that "plugged in" sound.

I let it charge for a while, and still no dice.

Try holding down the power button for half a minute or so. This will force it off, if hopefully it's just frozen on a blank screen.

[slaps self in the head] Funny thing is...I tried that an hour ago, and it didn't work. But I just tried it again...and it did. -.-; Okay, never mind. Problem is solved, folks.
