My guess would be paperwork (documentation stuff).
Usually nothing gets done until the paperwork's complete.  :)

Put it this way, if you ran into an OPF and shouted "I'm gonna throw something heavy at Atlantis"......they wouldn't frown at you, they'd shoot you!

Endeavour (OV-105)
    In Orbiter Processing Facility bay 2, orbiter Endeavour's electrical
system was partially powered up last Tuesday after nearly two years. Full
power-up is scheduled for Oct. 6.  During Endeavour's modification period, 124
were completed, including installing the new Multi-Functional Electronic
Display System.  More than 150 miles of wiring were inspected and 1,000
thermal tiles were bonded.  This was the second full modification conducted at
Kennedy.

In Orbiter Processing Facility bay 2, United Space Alliance technician Loralee Woodbury monitors the lighted display in Space Shuttle Endeavour's cockpit after full powerup, the first time the orbiter has been powered up after nearly two years :)
