i would have carried it with me cause of the way they throw things round in baggage.you coulld try removing battery and power cord and then pressing and holding power button down for 20 seconds .but kind of doubtful since it wont power on i would alert then about this and see what they suggest to do.then probably take it in to your computer place and see what they say about maybe if were mishandled in baggage

Yep, bad call to pack it in a suitcase (have you seen how baggage crews throw them around? Plus, suitcases are targeted by some crews for expensive goodies they can steal when they are loading/unloading).
