Help Clip Zip turning off on its own, can turn it back on by connecting it to PC

I bought my first Clip Zip ever less than a month ago and love it. However, on 2 different occasions I've been unable to turn it back on normally. I've only been able to revive it by connecting it to my PC.

I'm not sure if this explanation applies to my case, but I learned on this thread that what *might* be going on is that the firmware crashes when trying to read the metadata on the tracks.

The second time it happened I was able to witness it. The player appeared to experience problems to play one track in particular--and the glitch caused the pause button not to work for some reason--and soon after it turned itself off. The player was at least 80%-85% charged when that happened.

But, like I said, connecting it to the PC revived it. Annoying, but I could learn to live with it.

Two questions for the Clip Zip veterans out there:
  • How serious is this issue? Is it "normal"?
  • Is there any way to turn it back on without having to connect it to my PC?
