Yes, I can see how this issue would be in precisely the same class as not having the computer plugged into the wall.
A thousand apologies for wasting so much of your time.

J, to save the time of those posting,
it's more or less assumed you've already
tried the obvious things before asking
for help. Otherwise, posters are --
for example -- left having to first
question whether a machine is even
plugged in to the wall or not.
