    Hi Everyone,

    So its the weekend and I decided to re-start my playbook so I pressed re-start and left it, to join the family having dinner. When I got back it was still in "re-starting playbook" (displayed on screen). So i pressed the physical off button and the blackberry logo and "TURNING OFF PLAYBOOK" words appeared. Two hours later its still the same.

    This is the first time it happened. Any ideas how to solve this? It still has around 96% battery life.I tried the 3 button procedure and nothing happened.

    Would appreciate your input.

    Thanks
