I have this all the time when testing Iris lately. I think the problem
is that the SoC is somehow in a state which doesn't respond to the
power button anymore, possibly related to the usb connection. For me,
it always helps to take out all power (usb and battery), press the
power button a few seconds to make sure there is no charge in there
anymore, then plug in the power again. Pressing the reset switch would
probably also work, but I never tried.

Hope this helps. If not, it sounds like a hardware failure.
