I am curious if anyone else has this problem. I have a new 5040. When ever I momentarily lose power, the 5040 remains endlessly in the "Please Wait" mode. I have tried warm booting and cold booting and waiting 10-15 minutes each time with no luck. However, I did find one remedy. If I disconnect the ethernet cable and then cold boot, it starts up quickly. Once the "please wait" screen is gone, I can plug the ethernet cable back in and everything works fine. I seem to remember reading somewhere that this is a common problem when using DHCP, but I have the unit set for a static IP address. Does this problem sound familir to anyone?
