    Why did battery replace fix TF700?

    Odd question as I fixed my own issue, but I am hoping someone can tell me _why_ what I did worked.

    I hadn't used my TF700 in half a year. I tried turning it on and nothing. So I let it charge, but it still wouldn't boot. The light would go from orange to green without issue, it just wouldn't turn on (hold power for 30s, reset pinhole, power+vol up, power + vol dn). It would even charge via PC USB (eventually) even though the PC wouldn't acknowledge the device was in (adb or lsusb). I let the battery run down (two months of being idle) and recharged via USB. Nope!

    So I finally got fed up. Saw an iFixIt article on spudging it open, and flipped the internal battery switch off. Plugged it in to see if it would boot from the wall adapter (nope, and nope; blinking orange light), unplugged the wall adapter, flipped the battery switch on, and tried booting... And bam! Tablet turns on no problems with most of the charge. ...the hell?

    I presume it was ASUS coma-mode kicking in, but I want a more professional opinion (and recommendations if using a custom rom will prevent such a reoccurring from happening as I plan on leaving my tablet idle another half year).
