Well I'm starting this thread to share my scary experience and possibly gain some knowledge as to why it happened.
Here's the story. I've been using my Droid as an alarm the past week. I love the rooster alarm, it wakes me right up! Anyways, last night i decided not to charge my phone overnight since it had 80% power, so I simply just placed it on my night stand. My alarm went off at 8:00am and me still being a bit tired, I hit the snooze button on the screen. I woke up later to no alarm and the instant feeling I had overslept. I went to my Droid and it appeared dead. I figured the battery had gone dead. So I plugged it in and rushed through my morning routine. On my way out the door I grabbed my phone and noticed that it was still dead. No response from the screen or power button and the LED light on the side was not illuminated while it was on the charger. Charging it seemed to have done nothing. Running real late at this point I rushed out the door and figured I'd just pop into a Verizon store sometime today and get a replacement. I decided first to exhaust all of my options and pull out the battery. I placed the battery back in and it fired right up! It had 70% battery too. At this point the phone is running as usual and nothing seems out of the ordinary.
Anyone have any ideas as to why my Droid would appear completely dead? Anyone have any similar experiences?
