I'd guess that the system hibernated as a self-preservation measure, i.e. it sensed a drop in battery voltage or some such. If you have access to a second battery I'd try that. There are laptops out there that won't run without a battery inserted, even if you connect the AC adapter.. I don't know if this is one of them.

Was your computer dropped/shocked recently? How old is the computer/battery?

hi, for hp note books there should be a system-off switch (for restting notebook)
on the left side under the pc card slots eject buttons.
insert straght paper clip into the system off switch.
I have a hp n5470 and it has one but i have never had to use it.

You did a battery drain by holding the powerbutton for 2 minutes?
I never heard of a powerdrain.

Well, good to know it helped you.
