    I think not.

    I have seen this problem too many times, and it's due to your sudden power off. At the login screen, press Ctrl + Alt + F1, log in, and type this command:
    Code:
    sudo chown yourusername:yourusername .Xauthority
    then type "exit" to exit, and Ctrl + Alt + F7 to go back to your normal logging in screen.
