I've been using this combo (LP-E4N and 1Ds MkIII) for 2 days and have experienced one of these lockups each day. The LCDs stay on, but no buttons work and it won't shut off until I pull the battery.

It was great to see this post! Good to know I'm not alone, and that it's not serious.

Just to follow up:  I used the camera on 4 different sessions in the last two days with no problems at all using one of the LP-E4 batteries.

I did notice that I'm running firmware 1.2.0.  The current version is 1.2.3, so there might be an undisclosed firmware fix for this that I haven't loaded yet.  I'll try to load that soon and try the LP-E4N battery again to see if it makes a difference.
