If the FR don't owerup, don't panic, I usually plug it in the OM wall 
charger for about 30min and then i try to power it up, everything goes 
fine without a problem. Second solution is to plug it with the usb 
cable, wait 5 min and then power it up, sometimes it powerup when i plug 
it in the usb. (uboot updated with the last included in om2008)

Yeah, anyone know anything to see which of the many things on the FR is 
draining my battery?
