Odd, Maybe you had a surge, and fault protection kicked in on some devices... Just taking a shot in the dark.

These things simply can't be explained! How many times has a person shut down a perfectly good setup only to have refuse to start...tried everything...gave up.

Waited a few days before rebuilding the box, decided to try one last time before tear down and have it boot right up good as gold....These things simply cannot be explained nor understood!!

If you know an electrician who is cheap (or owes you a favour) and reliable, then it might be advisable to get him to do an earth-leakage safety inspection on every device that was affected by this problem.

As SteveI said, it sounds very much like a power surge, although your UPS should suppress surges from the mains. Therefore, it is entirely possible that one of the devices after the UPS suffered a fault. It's a pretty daft idea, but generally a UPS provides a common ground for all devices connected to it - if one device failed and dumped its power to earth, then all the others will be adversely affected, causing their internal protection circuits to trip.

(I'm assuming you use grounded power supplies in the US)
