No problem, mate. Actually, my Chuwi Hi8 Pro "dies" at least once a week when I forget to charge it.
Under "die", I mean I cannot normally power it on, even if there is charge in the battery or with cable plugged in.
So what do I do?
I don't shut it down ever. I just lock the screen and let it sleep.I disabled hibernate in power options, because I cannot easily bring it back from hibernation.
I don't know much about it, but my impression is that apart from battery reporting wrong values, Sleep modes are not being correctly handled. Both being fault of Intel. I would like to remind you that Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book also had these issues till recently.
Intel also abandoned Atom architecture few days. Which powers our tablets. So I don't expect Chuwi engineers to fix what Intel couldn't and obviously won't as it doesn't bring them enough $$$.
Anyways, when it's "dead", I charge it to the point when the LED light is no longer blinking, but being constantly lit on.
Then I molest it with whatever combination of following:
1) Hold power button for 7 seconds, let go.
2) Press power button shortly three times in a row, immediately afterwards hold power for 10 seconds.
3) Hold both power button and volume up button for 7 seconds, let go.
4) Hold both power button and volume button (press the center of the volume rocker) for 10 seconds, let go.
"Let go" part is important as I often notice it starts up several seconds after I let go, not immediately.
I do whatever I feel like of 1,2,3,4 sometimes even for several hours before it's back from the dead.
It's also important to charge it fully again after half an hour of attempts as mere button pressing action seems to spend electricity.
So I didn't send it back in the end, I am "reviving" it regularily with procedure described above. When the tablets works, it's amazingly good, so I am a bit sad that overall experience with Hi8 Pro is less than stellar when it could be.
