The coolest most terrible thing just happened

Actually, it's not cool at all.  I was sound asleep and having some dream when suddenly, there was a loud pop in my dream, a balloon burst, and I was awake.  I'm lying there in bed, wondering why I woke up, when I notice that the reassuring hum of my computer is missing.  The reassuring hum is actually the power supply chugging away and not the actual computer, or so I believe.  I take off the headset I fell asleep wearing and listen again, still nothing.  As I start to move to figure out why I can't hear my computer, because I know it's not that silent.  There's a second loud pop, a flash of smoke, and now the acrid smell of burnt out electronics.  Seeing as how I sleep in a small room and that took place right next to my feet, you can bet I got up really fast.  As near as I can determine, it looks like only the computer's power supply fried, but since that's plugged into every major item on the computer, I won't know the full extent of the damage until the morning when I can replace the power supply.  Well, all my adrenaline is wearing off from flying out of bed, so I'm going to try to get back to sleep.  Hopefully by the time I get up in the morning, the burnt smell will be out of my room, since I opened a window.
