You'll find people there pretty much 24/7 :-)

So it has returned from the dead ? Congratulations !

I once did a few experiments with a number of Bens and found that
removing _all_ power for about 12 seconds reliably reset them:
The 30 seconds suggestion adds a bit of tolerance for process or
component variations. (In fact, I would have said 20 seconds but
I couldn't find that posting before :)
I don't use the battery much but I wouldn't be surprised if a
weak/failing battery could keep the Ben in the zombie state for
a very long time.
