<snip>I turned the Newton on this morning and saw a message that asked if I wanted to delete all data.  I chose No and it turned off.  Now it won't turn back on even with new batteries in it.

There's several ways to reset a Newton...I've had what you're describing happen to me a few times. Remove all power from the machine (the batteries and the ac adapter/charger) and let it sit for a while (at least 10-15 minutes. preferably more). Afterwards it should start right up...but you will need to reset the touch screen and the date/time.
