See if there is an updated BIOS for your mobo, if you encounter the problem again. If it only happened once, I wouldn't stress too much. Still, check you HDD and backup :)

It could be that some task was scheduled to run or just some glitch in software / hardware that threw the whole boot up process into oblivion. RESET is your best friend, most of the times :D
