If the device doesn't wake up with the buttons you may have to remove the battery from the FF2 and then reinsert it. I've had to do this more than once. I think this may be caused by leaving the Unit on the dock too long. Also another thing that's happened to me is after leaving it on the dock too long I'll pick it up not even touching the buttons and it will start to fire up on it's own. Kinda nuts at first but just removing the battery again resets it. Not a big deal for me just little quirks this thing has. I still love it though!!!
