Help Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - touchscreen not working

My Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is just 5 days old. Today after working on it after an hour, I shut off the Tab when I got a 'low battery' alert. Everything was fine when I shut the power off. And when I took out the Tab again to recharge it, I find that the touchscreen is not working.

I tried to shut off the machine again but because the touchscreen is not working, I am not able to choose the 'power off' option.

Has anyone else faced this problem?

Please help with your inputs.

I had the "touchscreen stops responding" issues with 2 of the 3 Galaxy Tabs I owned. I hope that issue doesn't happen again, but it probably will so my recommendation is to go ahead and get a replacement while you still can.
