Do I pull the battery? None of the buttons, including the reset, seem to have any effect.

If the Cybook is frozen to the point where even the Reset won't work - and the LED is still glowing - then by all means, pop open the battery compartment and disconnect the battery. I don't know if it will totally clear the lock-up, but at least the Cybook will be off.

Please report back if disconnecting and re-connecting the battery helps with the lock-up. And you should let the battery stay disconnected for at least 10-15 seconds - I'd give it a solid minute.
