    How far along did the update get? Assuming it got all of the way through it takes me holding the power button for around 3-4 seconds before it comes on (which even after releasing the power button there is a delay before the post screen).

    Also, when you plug it in the tablet to charge, it should power itself on.

    My extremely uneducated immediate guess is that it shut down to prevent the upgrade download attempt.

    My own TF was around 47% when I tapped the notifications to start the 3.1 process. The machine warned me that the procedure could not take place and recommended that I fully charge the battery before any attempts. Do you see any signs of life at all? Have you plugged it into mains charger?

    I know this thread is a couple of weeks old, but any luck with your transformer?
    Mine did the same thing except I had already been using it for 2 weeks.
    I just went to use it and the screen would not turn on. I can hear the e-mail notification and the computer recognizes it when I plug it in to the computer's USB.
    But for whatever reason the screen just stays black. I held down the power button for 20 seconds and it will make a very light click sound.
    I tried reseting it with power and volume down, but no luck. Asus tech support could not figure out, they want me to send it in.

    Mine has done the same thing and I didn't install anything new... Just woke up one day and blank screen, though you can get to it still connects to the computer.

    I read something about maybe draining the battery completely, and I'm going to try that now, but that will take a while without something running. I've tried cold boots, hard resets and even factory reset (blindly)...

    I say blindly because when you reboot, not even the asus logo shows up. Nadda.. Nothing. The screen backlights come on, and that's about it.

    Anyone find a solution to this yet that doesn't involve a couple days of waiting?

    Did you try plugging it into the wall charger for about 30+ minutes?

    I had a dead tablet battery last weekend and it would not even turn on. Had to charge it (wall plug had come unplugged from the wall and I did not realize it).

    Yea, tried that.. It's not that simple I'm afraid.

    I did manage to fix it. I took off the back cover and pulled the battery connector for about 30 sec... Same thing as letting it drain.
    Just wish I knew what causes the problem in the first place.
