The power button popped off its little stem. Is there a way to insure this doesn't happen again? I'm sure a dab of hot glue is not the recommended solution. I was fumbling for the button in the dark last night and couldn't find it. I turned on the desk light and lo and behold, the button had popped off.

Philip - The 6000 power button is a snap-on type button, so using hot melt glue would probably make a mess of things.  I recommend that you take a flashlight and look at the button stem, as it has notches that need to align with the inside of the button.  Once it is aligned properly, press the button back on.  Don't be afraid to use a little pressure to snap it back into place.  If this does not work, then open a HelpDesk ticket so we can get this issue resolved.
