Default Locked up

I was in File Expert this morning, about to back up my apps, and my screen locked up . The only button that works is the on/off, but it only turns the screen on and off. No power down, no back, no settings, nothing. SPG5, so can't do a battery pull (what was Samsung thinking?). I thought maybe my battery went to zero, but I have it on a charger now, still just screen on or off. Is there a reboot sequence?

HELP!

edit: Sorry for the panic. I discovered that if I looooooooong press the power button, it finally rebooted. Not like a typical power off, a hold for 5 seconds; this took a hold of at least 30 seconds. Screen did nothing for a while, then turned on, then turned off and rebooted. All is back to were it was...

There is a system reset talked about in the manual -

"If your device is frozen and unresponsive, press and hold the
Power/Lock Key for 8 to 10 seconds."

The manual is a pdf file on the Samsung website.

Happily, you came upon the reset when you held down the power button.
