Can an unconscious character be woken?

e.g. When a character succumbs to Drow Sleep Poison, this is not as in the spell Sleep where "slapping and wounding awakens an affected creature". (PHB 3.5 p280)
"An opponent hit by a drow's poison weapon must succeed on a DC13 Fortitude save or fall unconcious."  (MM1 p103).  
Rules Compendium states "an unconsious creature is knocked out and helpless".  (RC p35)

By what means may this state of unconsciousness be broken, if at all?  Any offers?   Laughing

You should need to neutralize the poison first or need to wait for its duration to expire.
Thank you.
