    "Downloading... Do Not Turn Off Target" Phone is frozen !?!?!?!

    Hi all,
    I loaded the latest version of Kies onto my PC.
    It detected that I needed to upgrade my firmware on my Samsung phone. I clicked on all the buttons as normal to go through the process.
    It started the upgrade process. I walked away.
    Upon returning 5 mins later it said it had a problem detecting my phone. The 'connected device' in Kies was now empty (previously my I9300T was shown).
    The screen on the Samsung now shows a Green Droid with the message below it "Downloading... Do Not Turn Off Target"
    Considering this is a firmware upgrade I believe the system is frozen.
    I disconnected the USB lead, restarted Kies and replugged the USB.
    It still didn't detect it.
    I have a choice of:
    (a) Attempting to touch the power button and see what my options are if it activates,
    (b) If power button doesn't work, pull out the battery, wait 30secs and then re-insert it,
    (c) anything else you guys can think of.....
    Many Thanks
    Steve

    p.s. just pressed the power button and NOTHING happens...... :-(
