I don't think so.  The natural inclination when this problem happens 
is to press the button again and again for longer and longer times 
(at least that's what I do) until you finally give up and use the key.  I 
would think that too many folks are having this problem - with the 
same reported symptoms - for it just to be not holding the button 
long enough.
