My 721 was getting a little sluggish, so I rebooted it this morning. After it came back up, the power button would not work, either on the remote or on the unit itself. I could not turn it off, which I suppose is better than not being able to turn it on, but still not a good thing. So I tried rebooting again, and holding down the power button for 5 seconds did initiate the reboot just fine, and it came back up and I still can't turn it off. I had to leave for work so I didn't get a chance to try unplugging it to see if that fixes it.

Has anyone seen this before?

Thanks,
Dennis

I'm pretty sure that's normal operation. It's still downloading/uploading (whatever). You'll get full control back if you just give it a few minutes.

It was fine when I got home from work. I never had this problem before - it always worked right away.
