That happened to my 500 iceBook once when I was running an early version
of OS X (maybe 10.0.3?).  I never got it to wake up.  I finally 
it and removed the battery, then put it back and rebooted.  Before you
do something that drastic, make sure the display isn't just turned off.
Press the little happy sun button a few times and see if you can 
see things.  A long shot, but simple to try.

Good luck.
