    the battery will drain in a day or two if you dont charge it.

    unless its defective. did he ever drop it in snow or water recently?

    if not. try a new usb port and try to restart the computer

    is it doing ANYTHING when you plug it in (making a sound etc?) what about if you plug it into the wall charger, you see the battery or anything?

    you said youd tried keeping hold of the home and power buttons to force reboot it right?

    id let it charge for a while if it had completely run out, and then try again.

    otherwise i guess you gonna have to take it back to the store.
