Thanks for the thoughts, but I use an UPS, so none of the above should
apply. The best explanation, that I have seen, is this:

If so, I know why your old one died. You've been
working it flat-out until you went away. When the
garage door went down and all was still, it said to itself:
"He's gone! Now for a little well-deserved shut-eye." It
just didn't wake up, that's all. :-)
