Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Will Not Start Up

I was using my Galaxy Tab to read some comics.  I'm sure when I powered it down, the battery still had some juice left.  When Cols tried to turn it on today, it would not power up anymore.  I tried different electric sockets and plugging it direct to a USB port to no avail.

Finally, after reading some Android/Galaxy Tab forums, other users suggested holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds.  Some suggested touching the screen at the same time.  I don't know if the latter is just coincidental, but I pressed and touched at the same time and it worked!
