Sounds like a dead battery. Let it recharge for about 8 hours.  When you turn it on you may need to hold the power button for 15 to seconds.

Did you get this issue resolved Balbo76?  Did the charging plus holding the power button do the trick?

Annoying when you try and help folks and then don't know if they are ok. Odds are he or she isn't ok because they would be posting.

Or they just joined and posted to flame the Nexus 7, I have read reports/posts/comments that iOS fanboys are posting on any and every Android forum they can find flaming the Nexus 7 in an attempt to diminish it's current popularity.

Not saying that's what the OP is doing but just throwing it out there for peoples awareness.

This is a legit problem, however.  After two days, I began to have problems.  I read about the 30-second trick and it worked.  For awhile, the 30-second trick was the norm.  Then all was well.  However, as an old electronics tech, this didn't seem right to me.

I called Google tech.  They describe this as a problem and would have replaced it if I had bought it from them.  So, I contacted Game Stop, where I got mine and they replaced it hassle-free. 

I highly recommend replacing any device that doesn't do what it is supposed to do.  Yes, it comes up after 30 seconds now, but what about in the future (like, when it is out of warranty)?  I am not bad-mouthing the device.  I love it so far.
