Mirror up, camera won't turn on

I was just investigating some of the settings on my Pentax K10D and came across the mirror up function to clean CCD. Decided I'd try it out and selected "mirror up" and heard the mirror go up, then saw it said 'turn off to end', and so I did that, heard one more clunk, and when I tried turning the camera back on....nothing. It won't turn back on, I get nothing.
I did have my lens attached at the time, and after taking it off noticed the mirror is still up.
What do I do?? Very frustrating...

It was the battery! I thought it was full, apparently not. Thanks so much!

On my K-x I found that when you have it lock the mirror up for cleaning for some reason or another it puts a hefty strain on the batteries.
