Down side is, if it's dead, your water would be getting fouled...
Snails sometimes don't move for VERY long periods of time. Not moving is not an indication of death. Like lascolinas mentioned, it will react and close it's door if it's alive. If the door doesn;t close despite handling it, it's probably dead.
