I must say I'm not exactly loving my n800...

Battery died while in sleep mode over night (sayd it had days of idle
time available but I guess waking up every 10min to scan for wireless
killed it).  This morning after hours of charging and while plugged in
it will not power up.  The back light comes onand the screen goes
white, once I even got a Nokia logo, then it dies.

I did find some references to this happening on line and the answer
seems to be to reflash from linux, is that really the only answer?
I've only had the thing 5 days, I can do this if I must but I'd really
rather not.  It also is a bit puzzling from a commercial device, I
haven't even done anything weird to it yet...

Is reflashing the only answer?
