As far as I can tell, yes.  When I power it up the lights across the top 
(Type 6 keyboard - num Loc, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, Compose) flash on 

It used to only work via a serial connection to [I believe] port A.  
Once it stopped working, I've gone back to trying to use a connected Sun 
keyboard and PC monitor via adapter.

This morning, I have the cover off.  When I power up the machine while 
holding Stop-N, I get a beep, the 4 lights flash on briefly and then 
off, I then hear the [CPU?] fan come up and then shut down.  The power 
light on the front of the machine never comes on.  This is the typical 

If I leave it plugged in [or is it plugged in and turned on?] for a 
while, eventually, the front power LED will light -- takes a few days,
