It could take up to 30 minutes before the Shuffle shows any signs of life. I assume you are using the same cable that was originally included with the Shuffle when you purchased it?
How long has it been since it was last used. If it's been an extended period of time, the battery may be totally shot on the device as an iPod's batteries need constant activity in order to build and maintain a charge.
