It's possible that you have a bad power switch circuit .
have you plugged an a/c charger into the ipod yet?
it should boot with an a/c charger.
also,
plug it into the computer and see if itune recognizes it, if so then your LCD is probably bad and you just don;t know it's on.

and if you have put the ipod into dfu mode it will come up on itunes as being in recovery mode.
go ahead and restore it, if you worried about a jailbreak, dont, you can jail break it easy after it's restored. but i would make sure you have a copy of your current firmware prior so you can restore to the some firmware or something close.
here is a link to a firmware for the 2g: ipod touch firmware

here are the steps to put the ipod in dfu mode:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Plug the usb cable into the Ipod and NOT into the computer.
Hold the Home Button down for 5 second (do not release it)
Then Press and hold the Power Button for approx 10 secs (count them out)
Your iPod will reboot.
Release the power button and continue holding the Home button for an additional 27secs.
You may see the screen go blank or not.
Plug the USB end into the computer with itunes open.
Your ipod will mount in recovery mode.
When you go to press restore press the SHIFT key when you hit restore and choose the firmware you have downloaded.
