I am having this same problem, I've taken the battery out multiple times and tried to do resets but nothing happens. It stays off and only the LED blinks green when I press the power button.

Same thing happened to me the other day. It's probably because your battery is drained. Plug into a wall charger and let it charge for at least 30 minutes.

First of all, your reply has no useful information whatsoever, second, when the device works just fine for month while plugged in into computer then one morning it doesn't wake up, what do you expect people do? And why in the world would it matter for a good built phone that charges through USB matter if it's plugged in into computer or a wall charger? - it's nonsense...
In fact, there are many other phones that even if the battery dead it would work when plugged in into computer, even removing battery wouldn't shut it down.
In Atrix case if battery died you have to find a wall charger, then wait 30 minutes? seriously? - well done, Motorola, well done!

It's not nonsense. USB can only provide 500mA of current, wall chargers pretty much can double or triple that. That's why it takes ages to charge any phone over USB compared to a wall charger.

First of all, why are you digging up this relic of a thread? The comment you're responding to is from 4 months ago.

Second of all, @CaelanT is right, sometimes people panic unnecessarily. It happens. And his comment does offer something useful, it's a reminder that sometimes it can be the simplest of things that will resolve your issue.

Third of all, @turl1 is correct about the mA output, that's just common sense, though some newer computers are capable of 1Amp of output.

Have a nice day. :)

well in my case i had a full battery

it didnt even take me 20 secons for it to pop right up....

what happen was that one battery was basically dead... put it in n nothing, put in the full battery n nothing...

so put in fill battery n pop it in the wall socket n wwollah.. pops right up..

ANOTHER THING... I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND CHARGING FROM A COMPUTER!

was charging mine since day n battery was at 100 n withing 2 hrs it was literally dead n my battery is brand new....

so ye, basically goto train it again...

and as much as possible...USE UR ORIGINAL CHARGER !!!
