I still think it just froze up, it's a fairly common problem with the m8. It wouldn't make sense for it to randomly boot into the hboot menu from a powered on state and not respond to input.
I see your point, but at least for me, it froze up immediately after I had tried to reboot it. And, as I mentioned, my current device does not have at least two other symptoms/issues which I had thought were "features" not "bugs" on my old handset, so it's just as well I did the warranty switch.
UPDATE: Also note this link
(see second item down) which suggests this phenomenon might also accompany a battery calibration issue.
