I opened laptop to resume work. It began to 'waken' from sleep state, but I closed 'lid' again before it had fully wakened. Monitor is now blank/black, and laptop is unresponsive to any input, even though power is still indicated as 'on'. Cannot shut down, as power button is nonresponsive. I removed AC power cord, with no change.
Should I remove battery, discharge power button, then reinsert battery and AC cord and power up again?

If you mean "My Dell laptop stays on while hibernating" then I would make sure that you are actually hibernating and NOT hitting the "sleep" button.
If you hit sleep or close your laptop then any small movements could possibly wake it up (though you would need to hit the start button to turn it on from sleeping usually)
If you hibernate then your computer saves its current state and shuts off so that way it can resume its current state next time your start up.
Are you positive you are putting it into hibernate and giving it time to shut-down without moving it? (Closing it before it is ready will tamper with the process at times)
There are different ways that work, try and see what works for yours. Sometimes all you have to do is hit the space bar, press the enter key, hit any key, close the lid and open the lid and some require you to Press the Power Button. Don't worry pressing the power button will not reboot the computer unless you continuously hold it down. Just pressing and releasing it will cause the computer to wake up and resume.
Momentarily press the power button to get it out of sleep mode. When out of sleep mode set up power function, right hand mouse click on battery icon and select power options, select an option without sleep mode. Hope that helps.
Go to the control panel > power Options......Unselect Hibernation, and change the setting for what the laptop does when the lid closes. By default, when you close the lid, the computer will go into sleep mode. This is one of the worse things Windows ever put into practice. Nothing but torment and trouble follows sleep mode. Change the setting to "do nothing" and make sure everything else does not say sleep or hibernate.
You probably have a sticking hibernate, or sleep button. Near the hinge, there is a tiny pin looking thing sticking up. When you shut the computer, this presses against a switch below the case and puts the computer into sleep or hibernate mode. If this sticks, it won't boot up right. Shut the computer down and use canned air to blow out at the pin opening to clear any debris.
it is possible that the latch is sticking. located under the lid.
try pressing the small button, with a small blunt screwdriver.
Failing this, adjust the settings in My Computer/Control Panel/Display settings or Similar. If they,re adjusted to hibernate/sleep/shut-down computer, when i close the lid.
this is where the problem will be. Try changing to Do-Nothing or similar.
