    Simple Touch auto-upgraded...but froze in process

      I received a Simple Touch for Christmas about a year and a half ago, and I had avoided updating the software because it was working just fine.


      Well, last night it suddenly decided that it would just go ahead and update itself without asking me.  This was about 16 hours ago...and it's still sitting on a screen that says "this will take a few minutes".  There's something that looks like a progress bar that might spin or something, but there's nothing actually moving on the display. 


      Is there any possible way to turn this thing off?  I don't have any tools to rip it open, and since it had ~30% of its battery left when this started, it's going to take a loooooong time for it to just sputter out and power itself off.  Is it likely that I'm going to have to throw this out and buy a Kindle, or can I actually try to do something to save this?
