I found about 10 of these on a windowsill & at the time I thought it was dead. While I was taking pictures it started moving and then walked off of the edge of the dime.

Moved from Snout and Bark Beetles.
ID verified with European expertise.

Snout beetle
I believe this is some type of snout beetle, family Curculionidae. I'm not very good with beetles though, so someone with more expertise will have to help you pinpoint the genus/species.

 
Curculionidae.
Richard is right on with the family ID. Weevils are possibly the most diverse organisms on the planet, so we may never get down to genus even. Might help to know more information. I wonder if you have plants, firewood, or other organic matter that you have brought into your home, accounting for their emergence indoors.
