okay, this is going to a point where I am getting pissed about the lack of support on this...

I got xobs advice here, so I tried the reflash-button on plug-in again but as posted it didn't help.
After pelruns post I contacted support, with a link to here.
It got replied with “bunnie and xobs should reply directly on the forum, have you been in touch with them yet?”. I answered summing up the contents of this thread, but didn't get a reply. Another mail this monday remains ignored so far...

nice to know I am not the only one for whom reset-button doesn't do anything with a disconnected battery
support wasn't of any help yet, either...

on another note: is it normal, that I measure 0V on the battery when it is disconnected? Literally 0.05V!

I disconnected everything on the battery, held down reflash, and plugged it in. Did not help sad
Doesn' boot and still the same output on the console.

When I first plugged my Laptop in, I was a bit surprised it started up right away, without me pressing a power-button. Apart from that it wasn't surprising to see it boot up, create user etc...

I also did a apt-get update/upgrade and after that wanted to do a reboot. Shutdown from GUI seemed okay, but the backlight of the display stayed on, and I could not turn the thing on or off again. Even unplugging didn't turn it off. It finally turned off, when I unplugged my USB-Keyboard when AC was unplugged.

From then on, it didn't boot again. When I plug in AC, backlight goes straight on, but it doesn't boot. It turns off when I unplug AC.

The console says this

I tried to boot with battery unplugged and reflash button pressed, but it doesn't help and the console gives the same output.
