    Im really sorry if this is a silly question. I was playing football manager, then had to dash off somewhere for 15 mins, by the time i got back the screen was black, i just assumed it was on standby, i pressed space bar to carry on playing and NOTHING happened.. i pressed the on|off button and nothing happened.. i pressed and held the button to switch it off.. nothing happened..

    It is still running now, but nothing is activating it, i pressed the caps lock button to see if the keyboard was operating and it didnt light up as normal.

    Im just letting the battery drain on it to see if it does anything on the reboot.. i dont know what else to do.. please advise!!!

    I only purchased it on Fri.. so its 2 days old i really hope it isnt broken already, there must be a simple answer for this?

    I look forward to reading any advice, thanks for reading this thread :(

    I assume Football Manager was still running?

    Can you press CMD+Q and see it working?

    What if you hold down the power button for ten seconds?
