Default my d700 would not turn off,

When I got home, I noticed that my D700 would not turn off. I removed the CF card,the battery , waited, tried a different battery, but each time I put a battery in it, it's ON! I tried wiggling the switch, all to no avail. It's less than a year old and still on warranty. Tomorrow I'll check on a repair, but wonder if anyone else has had this happen to them. I wonder if it's an omen telling me to either hurry up and get a D3x or wait for whatever Nikon is supposed to have up its sleeve in a few weeks.

Thanks for your any help.

Nikon had an issue with the power switch used with the D5000 body and ended up issuing a service bulletin and recalling a lot of them. But, I haven't heard of this issue with the D700 body before.

I'd send it to Nikon and let them fix it for you.

That's a luxury problem.
If you can't tun it on, it's a bigger problem.

As someone already has suggested, this may be a power switch problem.
I suppose it isn't very expensive to fix.
