Permanently Sleeping - the Rip Van Winkle Laptop

I have a R61 laptop, that  I would sometimes have the problem of it going into "deep sleep" and then it would not turn back on - usually this would just be fixed by disconnecting power and battery, and then rebooting.  This time however, after disconnecting everything, it would not power back on again - at least, while buttons would light up, it would not respond to any keystrokes, and the screen would be off - even the little reading light at the top would not turn on, when keys were pressed.  CLosing the lid would not put the laptop to sleep either (with the little "moon" LED light lit).  I unplugged and disconnected battery for about 30 minutes, which should be enough time to dissipate any electrical charge, but it still isn't working.
Any suggestions?
