I recently jailbroke my iPhone 3GS using absinthe-win-2.0.4 and today I shut the phone off completely and restarted it because it seemed to be running very sluggish.

After about 3 long minutes or so, it came back on but the applications I got from Cydia were no longer working. I haven't tried to reinstall yet but am curious if that is normal behavior?

The phone doesn't seem to be sluggish now.

I suspect it is no longer jailbroken because Cydia is not working either. What else might I expect? Is shutting off a jailbroken phone a no no?

I did as you suggested but being a non believer I knew it wouldn't do anything because I had just shut it off and restarted it.

But I was pleasantly surprised to see the jailbreak is back. It's back!

Thanks for that.

Sometimes the easiest things work.
I would have restarted it before posting a thread:)
