Intermittently dead UL

Recently, my Ultralite refused to turn on. I could hear the
high-pitched sound and the screen was very dark, but not totally
dark. There were none of the normal beeps which would indicate
that it was booting up. The battery was freshly charged. No
amount of fiddling with the on-off switch would get it to come
on. Today I tried it again, and it came on normally. I have
heard of Ultralites dying, but has anyone had an intermittent
problem like this? I suspect the switch. Does anyone have
advice on cleaning it? Also, are there any special tricks to
opening up the Ultralite? Any other ideas on what the problem
could be?
