Default Perpetual Standby; No Boot

Hey,
I've got a Win98 machine that went on Standby one night and hasn't
come off. Nothing will make it wake up. It doesn't respond to the
keyboard (ie, Ctrl + Alt + Del). I kill the power and unplug it, plug
it back in, and still it will not boot. It simply appears to be on
standby-- the monitor turns off and blinks and the CPU LED turns
orange, indicating its on standby. I have no way of accessing Windows
or even the CMOS or BIOS. Any thoughts?

Select "StandBy" on this page for some clues.
