Maybe your switch is sticky like mine. Sometimes I have to swing out the phonejack or even pull it out to watch what position it is in. Slide it left and hold for quite a while. Then mine often won't return and I have to push it to center (but not too far into the screenlock position).

Sometimes my Archos 3 Vision doesn't come on, and it's because of the power switch's design. The sliding switch engages a small button located under it when slid to the left, and clicks into a lock when slid to the right. The issue is that, unless you are applying slight pressure "into" the device while sliding and holding the switch to the left, the button doesn't completely actuate, and the unit remains off.

A minor, but regrettable design flaw that can easily be worked around. Barely worth complaining about in a sub-$100 media player.
