The mouse and all keystrokes have frozen concequently the machine will not shutdown as you can not shut off the power like in a desktop to restart.
Any suggestions.

It may take a while but leave it on just running off the battery until it goes flat. Plug it back into the mains supply and on start-up you will get scan disc after in-proper shutdown and away you. I have had the same problem with my Novatech laptop and found this the only way of getting back into the system once everything has locked up.

I don't know about your T30 but some laptops have a tiny reset button that you need to use a pencil tip to operate.
