Default Friend hit sleep, Now won't boot - 09-08-2009, 12:51 AM

My friend borrowed my mini and said when he was done he click the apple in the top left corner and clicked sleep. Now it won't boot at all. I am not able to write to the SSD either i connected my USB drive with the OSX dvd on it and tried to reinstall and it failed because it can not read/write to SSD. This is now the third computer this has happened to. I am at the end of my rope. :/

You can't "switch to SD" on the Mini 9 - it won't boot from the SD slot.
