Default Help, pls--screen stuck on "Downloading, do not turn off target!!!"

With three exclamation points that little android with a shovel looks serious.... I have not been using my SGP 5 (yp-g70cw/tpa) online for over a month until a couple nights ago, and it did a bunch of little app updates then. Today I went to get online and it froze on a black screen, so I tried to turn off and nothing, so I hld the volume and on/off button down together for 10 seconds and now I have a shoveling Android icon with message that it is downloading and not to turn off the target.

Is the target the Player or the wifi connection? If there is a new Samsung download it could take DAYS to load via wifi through my hughsnet satellite connection--I upgraded to Gingerbread over a year ago via my laptop that was ethernet connected--and THAT took over night....

It responds not to the main key nor does the device show up on my laptop when connected. HELP!
OK, I'm not long on patience, so I hit volume with on/off again and it turned off...turned it back on and just had a glowing "samsung" for a few minutes...'jogged' it by attaching to, and disconnecting from, pc.

What was that about?
