HAVE YOU DOWNLOADED ANYTHING ? I FOUND THAT I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AFTER DOWNLOADING ADOBE READER V6 FROM INTERNET. IF SO, DISCONNECT POWER, KEEP SWITCHING OFF , LEAVE FOR FEW MINUTES, POWER UP AGAIN & THEN DELETE THE LATEST ADDITION - THIS WORKED FOR ME- IM RUNNING XP ON MY LAPTOP.. HOPE THIS HELPS

Downloading critical updates and turned it off and it said saving settings and as stayed like that. I can't turn it off or unplug the power it just runs off the battery which is at full power.
