When I slide and release the power switch the kindle will not wake up. It is fully charged.

Which Kindle? Since you say "slide the power switch" I assume it's an e-ink Kindle.

Try rebooting it. Make sure it's fully charged and not plugged in. Hold the power switch over for 30 seconds (count them). Then put it down and don't touch it. It may take several minutes to reboot and for the books and Collections to repopulate.

My Kindle will not wake up. It has a slide power switch which worked perfectly for four months. I have charged it, tried the advice about holding the power switch.

Did you count the full 30 seconds until you see the restart screen?
