battery died died overnight, while turned off
woke up to a dead blackberry bold this a.m. Couldn't get a reaction out of it at all (pressing buttons, on, trackball, etc.) so I plugged it in, let it sit on the charger for a while--nothing, no lights or anything. Removed and replaced the battery, back on charger, nothing.

After sitting on the charger a while, I pressed a bunch of buttons until finally (after holding down the trackball button for a while) the screen lit w/ a battery charging image and a red led light. Couldn't tell if it was actually charging. Couldn't get it to do anything else.

I removed battery, replaced battery, put it back on the charger; finally it rebooted and the regular (clock) charging screen came up. Now I can finally get to a home screen and it seems to be working alright.

This was unexpected as I shut it off last night w/ some battery life remaining not set to auto-wake until about the time I picked it up this morning (and have only had it about a week).

Believe it or not it's only sleeping not turned off. Alarms and calendar events will still fire. So it does drain battery a little. My guess is that it drained it to the point that it took a good while to get a good charge back into it before it would boot.

I put my Bold on the Charging Dock every night religioushly, regardless of it being drained or charged.

I've had that happen to me with my Curve where it was fully charge and when i woke up it was dead.

I charge my Bold every night and during the day at work sometimes. I am thinking about a spare battery just in case.
