Re: My Friends list won't come up when I log on why?
If your friends list doesn't come up, it should mean that you're not connected to the PlayStation Network. Right now the Network is experiencing some problems, and I'm having a lot of trouble signing in as well. If you go under the Network column in your XMB and select "Sign In" it should try again to connect. Once you're connected, your friends list will appear.

Alot of times if the friends list is disappearing this means that you are losing your network connection causing you to disconnect from the PSN. Once you are disconnected from the PSN your friends list will go away.
Also let me know if you are connected via a wired or wireless connection on your network.
Try making an alternate user on the system itself and log into PSN. It might be that when you turned the system off the hard drive was in the process of writing and there's a possiblity that the user data was corrupted.
First go to settings and have the PS3 update the system's date and time via internet. If that fails, try rebuilding your database (It's helped many people in the past).
This is how to rebuild your database:
1. Turn off your PS3. 2.Press and Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again. Once the system is off then take your finger off the button. 3.Press and Hold the power button down again until you hear 2 consecutive beeps. 4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button. 5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button. 6. The Recovery menu will pop up. 7. Select the Rebuild System Database option.
The Recovery Menu supports the following options:
• Restart System: Restarts the PS3 System. • Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default. • Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files. • Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the Operating System for the PS3 (doesn't delete anything). • Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch. • System Update: Updates the PS3 firmware to current version.
