fannishminded: Seeds in Rockbeds
One quirk in Dwarf biology is that if they are ever completely surrounded by rock (without being crushed) their bodies essentially shut down and they begin to 'hibernate'. They can survive hundreds of years in this state and if the rock is ever removed, they wake up a bit hungry, thirsty, and sore, but otherwise completely okay.

Usually, it only kicks in in the result of a collapsed tunnel.

Thorin, though, prays that it kicked in for the hundreds (maybe thousands) of dwarves that Smaug's arrival trapped in the inner chambers of Erebor. He prays that if they can get rid of Smaug, they'll find the trapped dwarves asleep, okay, and most importantly: alive.
