If you don't have anything unsaved that you know of on your computer right now (or only have stuff open that you wouldn't mind losing), push in and hold the power button for 8 seconds. Basically, you'll know you're done when the machine shuts itself off.
That should allow you to cold boot the thing.
If that works, after you boot back up go to your display properties (start -> settings -> control panel -> display). Click the screen savers tab, then click the button on that window labelled something like "Power" or "Power Settings". There, you should be able to turn off hibernation, standby and sleep mode. I'd suggest you turn them all off.
Let me know if and how this all works out.
