I just had this problem too with my Kindle 3 (keyboard).
 
I forgot to close the window yesterday, and ''it got cold and the air was slightly damp while charging'', so I thought I had completely broken it. I don't think anyone here mentioned that kind of condition in which it happened, but I thought I would - maybe it is a factor of why it happens and nobody thought about it.
 
Anyway, I had a standby-screen and holding down the power didn't do anything, and neither did anything else I did. So eventually, about to give up I actually found a solution mentioned nowhere else.
 
'''I just typed "reset" into the keyboard and hit OK - and it started to reboot!'''
not
(not
the new-line button, but the one in the middle of the arrow keyskeys)
not
(not
the new-line button, but the one in the middle of the arrow keyskeys)
 
I admit I didn't think it would work, it was just frustration which made me do it, but it worked :)
