Basically that is to connect your phone to the PC. But by pressing Power & Volume UP would actually initiate a 'force restart' on the phone. I've tried on a couple of S already. Maybe you would like to try too?

I had the same problem. A few hours after upgrading to Android 4.0 my phone froze with a black screen, and I couldn't restart it. I saw your suggestion, tried it and finally it worked. Thanks...

Again try with correct procedure
Press and hold Power Button and Volume Up button at the same time
5 Seconds > Restart Phone
10 Seconds > Shutdown Phone
Backup everything as it will erase all data on phone (sms, contacts,apps)
