Okay, solved my own problem, and probably should have waited before 
posting it in the first place.  However for the sake of other newbies 
who may encounter the same problem, here's what I did .... I removed the 
battery and left it overnight sans power; it worked after that.

I've noticed that solution had worked in the past with another problem 
(the Newton not turning on at all), so I decided to give it a go even 
though I had already tried pressing the reset button.

Now that I think of it, it must be something about handheld devices ... 
my previous Blackberry (for work) occassionally had to be reset by 
removing the battery, although it didn't require an extended amount of 
time without power to solve a freeze.  At least my Windows PC just needs 
a reboot occasionally, without the need to unplug from the wall;-)
