Plug it in. After about 20 minutes, do a hard reset. Hold the home button and press the power button together. Hold until the apple logo appears. Give it a minute or two. It wouldn't just fail to power like that. If not, could be no power and thus need a new power adapter/cable. See if you can borrow someone else's

Is there a power on led? We've tried the 2 button hold(don't know if we'e gone over 30 sec, tho). It was working fine the previous eve and battery wasn't particularly low, but it has been charged several times. Felt pretty warm after charging, too...
No real power on LED if there is no power at all. You need a few minutes charge for the actual battery charging display to come on if it's totally dead. I'd suggest finding another ipad charger (note they are different from iphone chargers) even if it means going into the apple store. I wouldn't buy one if you didn't have to because that may not be it, but worth it to troubleshoot.

Really? There are no user serviceable parts inside??? Planned obsolescence, eh?
Absolutely. Apple intended them to be used and disposed of. An appliance. Even if you go into the Apple Store, they'll just take your old one, recycle it, and give you a new one. There are people who replace screens and batteries, but that's unauthorized.
