Have you tried turning it off and on again? (At the mains socket) Sounds like it might be in suspend mode and it doesn't want to wake up.

Otherwise, bash it up with a crow bar. This will "reset" the internal ACPI configuration.

Especially if the power button/power light is on but turned from green to amber (or similar), you may really be in sleep or hibernate (as mentioned above). Hold down the power button for like 10 seconds, this will create a forced shut down and you can then restart it manually from the button. If this does not work, unplug the system (by saying 'tower' I am assuming a desktop), wait 30 seconds and plug it in again. Then try to power it up.

I think we can leave the crow bar out of this (joke in bad taste) until you have reached more than 45 replies (at least), Ha, Ha.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
