sounds to me like a bad connection on your battery terminals. a while ago when i tried to start my car, everything would go dead. i had to tweak the positive battery terminal to get the power back. the computer would reset every time - NOTHING was able to get power. this would explain why your engine light didn't come on.

take the terminals off, give them a good clean, and put them back on nice and tight (not too tight though). you'll never have that problem again.

I had this problem with my VN a while back. The brushes on the alternator needed cleaning. It was a temporary 'bandaid' fix... eventually I replaced the brushes. Has been running without a hassle in this regard since then. Good luck :)
