You have to reset the unit in one way or another.  From my experience,
hitting the recessed reset button (the small hole above the "tab" key) works
fine, but the memory is still wiped, so you'll have to do the typical
calibration and so forth.

Last I heard, there are power management issues still extant on
NetBSD/hpcarm; hitting "off" doesn't go into low-battery mode like it does
for wince.  I could be wrong about "newer" kernels though....
