This morning my I-drive screen was frozen in the I-mode screen as well!

After I started the car it started of with a SOS not Available message on the instrument cluster. Then the I-drive screen froze and I could free spin the I-drive controller.
I also noticed there was no time and date shown in the lower section on the I-drive screen, while date and time were displayed on the instrument cluster. No radio, nothing.
I kept on driving and after approx 8 minutes the screen turned into the striped BMW screen - just like when you completely shut down the car. Following this the screen turned black and then it started up again with the "accept" message. After all this it is operating as before and it kept all my personal settings (radio stations, etc). I think it re-booted itself. I hope this is just a one time incident. BTW I have a 2006 330i and the dealer reprogramed the vehicle (including the updated I-drive sw) a couple weeks ago due to the infamous steering wheel lock error.

Any body experienced something similar?
