Probably far too hopeful but:
Turn off and disconnect from domestic power. Remove laptop main battery then hold the Power Off/On button in for about 20 seconds. Re-assemble, at odd times this has been known to "unstick" things.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Also, how long do you wait before rebooting or shutting it off? Turn it on and then go outside and water your tomato plants or something. See if it's still frozen when you get back.

Have you tried any of the safe mode boot options from the F8 menu?
