    When ever I turn my device off I can't turn it back on for a long time. I have to just keep hitting the power button hoping it comes on. Has anyone else had this problem?

    You have to hold down the power button to turn it back on.

    You are supposed to just press he power button for a few seconds, make sure you wait after you press it ... now maybe you have a problem with your power button.

    Yes, don't hold it down until it comes on, hold it for about 5 seconds then it should come back on.
