I was using it last night and turned it off, then a few minutes later went to turn it back on and nothing came up. I held the power button down for a few seconds and got nothing. I plugged it in to charge (but I recall it has at least 70%) power when I turned it off) and got nothing. I just plugged it into my computer with iTunes running and it wont show up.Its dead. One minute it was working, the next not. And Ive treated it like a baby. Its got iOS 4.2. Its a 16 GB Wifi only.Help please. iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Mac OS X (10.5.5)...|ipad-dead
