It won't power off, the screen isn't responding but it does connect via USBNET but not SSH if that make sense. I can see it in my Mac Network settings but can't ssh to it in terminal. Advice or have I just ruined my PW? Arggg
Try to just press the power button until the device reboots. The device should be usable despite that message (yes, I've also seen that message, and it actually didn't do any harm). If in doubt, restart the PW while it is disconnected
(=without any USB cable). That should do.
