I confirm. I tried to restart. Just nothing happens.

When it runs out of batteries, I can restart it and everything's fine
again. However, the described behaviour has happened three times up to
now, so I believe that there is a problem somewhere.

I simply believe that M:Robe isn't the most widely used platform for
Rockbox, that's all...

So, how should I start investigating this issue?

All the best,
