Re: [NTLK] Reset button -- doesn't!

Occasionaly I also have the problem of the non-working reset-switch. This happens to me, when the Newton hangs after a crash (about once in a month). The only thing that helps, is to take out the battery. After plugging the battery back in, and of course after the following reboot, the reset-switch will work again.
