I have had my touchpad since july 1st. I am trying to reboot it but for some reason it will not let me open any apps. holding down the power button does nothing. It usually worked butnot today. is there any hard button key combination like on the pre to reboot the device?

Try holding power + center button + up volume button...worked for me when my Touchpad would not respond to anything. I think this is the force reset implemented for the Touchpad, since we cannot remove the battery.

I don't think you need to held the volume button; just centre button + power button (you have to holding for a fair while, around 5 seconds, when release and you'll see the hp logo)

This is the instruction I received from the HP Touchpad support this week:

To force a reboot you have to hold the power button plus the centre button for 15 seconds - after what seems an absolute age the HP logo appears and the reboot starts.

my touchpad just now would not respond to anything. Nothing would happen hitting or holding any power button and plugging in battery charger did nothing.

the power+center button hold force restarted my TP and it booted right up.

mine wouldn't respond today either for some odd reason. The power and center button did the trick. Beware though holding the power, center, and volume button will erase everything. I did it and screen came up saying all appps and anything on the usp partition would be erased and a count down started. I just let go and it went away.
