Default Fermentation Problem

I'm confused. I've made many all grain brews and not had this happen. Normally the airlock bubbles away for a few days but this time I pitched my starter at about 12:00am, went to sleep, went to work the next day and when I got home about 6:00 I noticed hops around the edges of the fermenter so it looked like fermentation happened and was done? I took a hydrometer reading and it was at 1.040 (it started at 1.050). It's been 2 days since and I have not seen any bubbles? Whats up? I used a starter and airerated for 20 minutes with an aquarium pump?

was the temp of the wort to far from the temp of you starter? If so you may have shocked or killed the yeast.......

Amazing! I just checked it again and its at 1.010! No bubbles in the airlock for 2 days? where did the co2 go? I know there are no leaks because when I squeeze the fermenter the airlock bubbles. Anyways, I guess I'm good.
