    The situation;
    - iPad 16GB Wifi, ~50% charge at 11pm. OS is 4.2.1, non JB
    - Put on charge overnight
    - Next morning screen shows small Apple logo with 'gear' next to it, overlapping
    - On/off won't work
    - Plug into PC/charge does nothing
    - Eventually holding home button & power clears screen
    - Doing same again restarts, Apple logo shows for a long time
    - iPad eventually starts, all ok.

    Any thoughts of whether this an indication of hardware problems? Or just a software glitch?

    If it doesn't happen to often, then it's probably just a software glitch. I usually do a reset after downloading any large apps,multiple apps, or several updates, this usually prevents this from happening.
