HI and welcome...
Sorry to hear you are having problems with your iPad.
The question: why did it fail to start???
You didn't mention anything about how far the battery may have been discharged ??
Eventually had to reconnect to laptop, start itunes (which initially did not recognize the ipad) and after holding restart button down for about 15 seconds got the apple logo.
That isn't necessary. If your iPad won't startup normally, when you connect it to your computer, it will startup automatically, no need to hold down the start button, in fact, it may cause problems for the hardware by doing so.
Would be interesting to get Apple's viewpoint.
This is a user to user forum, not Apple. However, you can provide feedback here:
Apple offers a one year limited warranty on all iPads.
Bookmarking the online iPad user guide might come in handy.

Get the 4.2 User Guide. Page 170 gives a whole slew of suggested actions.
