I got my PSP yesterday and was pleasently surprised that all the games I pre-prepared on my Memory Stick worked first time.
Last night I played Wipeout and 1/2 way though a game switched it off.. This morning I swithed it on again and the game resumed, but when it got to save my profile it locked up.
After a few mins, I decided to hit the 'home' button and selected quit game.. Its now sat there at the "Please Wait" prompt. Is this a common occurance?? Is there a way to 'reset' the PSP when it gets into this state?
Hold the OFF/ON, Reset Slider, in the up Position for 3 or 4 seconds,
if that dont work Pull the Bat out.
And reading your post, you didn't switch it Off only put it in to Sleep Mode
The "Please Wait" prompt, Locking up is a common occurance, but i only get it with the New Loaders, Wab etc, While trying New Boot methods, Not While Running Backed up PSP games
