MacBook Pro screen won't light up

Aaahk! After a great (long) weekend away, without my laptop, I fired up my MacBook Pro ready to do some work BUT the screen would not light up. The battery was fully charged and the power adapter was working. After a quick look around via Google, I came across this site on Apple's support website.
"Reset the PRAM. After pressing the power button, hold down these keys simultaneously: Command-Option-P-R, until you hear the startup chime at least one additional time after the initial startup chime"
Immediately after holding the keys down, the screen lit up and I am back in business.

Side note:
Some additional reading noted that resetting the SMC would also resolve this issue however I did not have to test that so I can not confirm.
