Plug into the PC, then see if you can access your files. It's possible a corrupt media file was encountered and put the P2 into a bad state. If it was set to resume playing when turned on then this is even more likely.

Other things to consider: Did it get wet by chance? Was it being charged while your were at lunch? Each has perils.

have you tried the FDWN tool? there's a thread for it on this forum.

basically what it is is it's a tool you use for unbricking P2's. just plug your p2 in your computer, and follow the steps to run the program.
