Cranked fine this morning, now my truck will not start. Acts like a dead battery, no power at all. Charged the battery and still no power.

Do you

Check the battery terminals, disconnect and clean them and retest. Check the main fuses and fusible links.
Ensure ground circuits are clean and secure.

I disconnected the battery for about 30 minutes and reconnected it. Everything seems ok now. Any idea what may have caused this glich?

A poor connection can result in sparking which would cause contacts to fail. That is the reason I suggested cleaning and retightening the terminals.
