i am not able to turn on my droplet too… it says turning on but it got stuck for the past 30 minutes or so. the options for both the droplet console as well as recovery consoles are greyed out. i am helpless now. can anyone help pls ?


I would recommend contacting DigitalOcean’s support team if the you’re unable to power on your Droplet from the control panel, because usually the buttons in the panel work fine, so something else might be happening here.

Let us know how it goes. Alex
