Are you able to cold boot into firewire hard drive mode with CMD-T?
Not sure with those older iBooks.
After, you could proceed to extract/modify files on the iBook to
restore functionality. You would need a firewire to Thunderbolt or
firewire to usb, some such adapter. They're not too pricey considering
the peace of mind.
The firewire to Thunderbolt you might be able to get from the Apple
Store. I was able to some years ago.
The original iBook only has USB and I don't think it boots from it.
However, I think you refer to this as a procedure to restore the machine.
The iBook is not dead, at restart after a forced shutdown fsck runs
fixes and boots.
The issue is that sleep doesn't work anymore, more precisely, awaken
hangs! And it used to work very well. I suppse something in the kernel
broke, or some drivers or userland.
