    Is it out of power? When out of juice, a PowerBook/iBook won't come out of sleep mode. And it might not want to turn back on due to its low power levels.

    Try connecting it to AC power.

    Get a paper clip and press the reset button above the power button and remove the battery and wait 10 minutes.
