    Have you held down the power button for 5 to 10 seconds to turn it off?
    Can you still boot into Mac OS X via holding the OPTION/Alt key during startup?

    Btw, a MacBook is not the same as a MacBook Pro or even a Mac Pro.

    Look for the startup disk icon in system preferences. Select your Mac OS X partition.
