"Stiff" as in not moving at all? Sounds frozen. Perhaps you could elaborate a bit, maybe even post a picture?

As a general rule, if you pick a spider up and it is completely limp/unresponsive or it's joints don't articulate -as in rigor mortis- it is probably dead.

Is this s sling, juvie, adult? Please describe its condition with a bit more detail.

I would have immediately put it under a uv light or expose it to the warm. Sounds like its frozen.
