I've noticed this a few times now. After I reboot the pi from the shutdown menu in Raspbian it reboots and doesn't get past the loading screen with a flashing dash in the top right corner, rendering it virtually useless. Not sure if SSH was working up to that point, kind of regret not checking, if I had I could of checked out the logs.
It's kind of annoying because I have to re-flash the image onto the sd card again every time it happens (happened about 5-6 times now). The only causes I can think of are a damaged SD, or perhaps its not fast enough, I've ruled out insufficient power draw, it has a good adapter.
