I have seen (and posted about) this quite often.  I have experienced this behavior when the battery was not fully discharged, after doing the remove battery trick and restarting the device, it reported 3 bars of charge.  I almost always have to have it plugged into some power source, regardless of how charged the battery is.

Some say this behavior is a precursor to the White Screen of Death, but I have been living with it for about 8 or 9 mos. and that hasn't happened.  Also, I would swear that it happens less often now, but I don't really have anything to back that up.
